Florida lawmakers ended the 2020 legislative session by approving House Bill 1339 that authorizes local governments to approve affordable housing on any land zoned for residential, commercial or industrial use. Gov. Ron DeSantis would need to sign or veto the bill. Lawmakers could vote to override the veto. The bill introduced by Republican Rep. Clay Yarborough, whose District 12 covers a portion of Jacksonville, passed the Senate on March 11 by a vote of 39-0 and passed the House 101-19 on March 13. Other provisions in the bill address affordable housing and update provisions relating to mobile home parks and tenants.
