Growth Bill Passes Full Legislature
By: Christopher Emmanuel
The Florida Legislature today passed a Florida Chamber of Commerce-backed growth management bill that will help make Florida more competitive by streamlining rules surrounding developments of regional impact (DRI).
HB 1361, sponsored by Rep. Mike La Rosa (R- Saint Cloud), will allow approved construction plans to reduce in size without having to go through another layer of the approval process. This will help ensure that developers can continue with valuable construction efforts without unnecessary regulatory roadblocks.
We commend the Florida Legislature and Rep. La Rosa for his efforts to make Florida more competitive.
