UPDATE ON CS/CS/HB 883
March 6, 2018
The final vote on CS/CS/HB 883 (the CRA issue) is expected to take place this week. The Call to Action is to OPPOSE the “Caldwell Amendment” that contains the CRA language, which is proposed to be added to the bill – the amendment contains some of the contents of previously filed (and opposed by the Florida Redevelopment Association) HB 17 and SB 432, on CRAs.
The House took up the bill yesterday, but the vote was postponed. It has not taken the bill or the amendment up so far, but it is expected to come back up. Our position is to OPPOSE the Caldwell amendment to CS/CS/HB 883 on the House floor, third reading.
It is not too late to call your house members with this updated message! Their numbers can be found in this directory.
Also, our CRA coalition is vigilantly making any and all efforts to kill this amendment. If your lobbyist can help us on this bill, now is the time to have them contact Bill Peebles, FRA lobbyist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF the house bill is passed with the CRA language on it, the Senate could take up the House Bill and send it on to the Governor for his signature.
