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.
