Rep. Fine Files HB 17

Representative Randy Fine filed HB 17, a measure that would preempt many business regulations to the state. The Florida Chamber supports this measure because it will limit the growth of a patchwork of local regulations on businesses throughout the state.  HB 17 has only one committee stop remaining before the House Floor.
