Vote of the Regulatory Reform Subcommittee Fell Mostly Along Party Lines
As our many local government clients know, the Becker Team has been intimately involved in lobbying against the many attempts to limit their ability to manage the vacation rental crisis. The issue continues to severely impact cities of all sizes. We continue to be involved every day to see these efforts fail. At the same time, we want to keep our clients updated on developments both negative and positive.
The Florida House of Representatives took another step today in advancing HB 219, which seeks to preempt local governments from passing their own regulations dealing with vacation rentals. The bill passed the Regulatory Reform Subcommittee in the House along a mostly party-line vote of 10-7, with Rep. Will Robinson joining all Democrats on the committee in dissenting.
