Florida Legislature Delivers Another Important Legal Reform Victory

May 1, 2006

The Florida Senate today delivered another important legal reform victory to Florida’s business community by passing HB 1089 relating to construction contracting.  In a nutshell, this bill changes the statute of repose from 15 to 10 years in which a persona can bring suit against various construction professionals following the completion of the project.  This legislation is a part of the global tort reform package advocated by AIF and the Florida Coalition for Legal Reform. The bill passed the Senate today by a vote of 37-0 and will be sent to the Governor for final approval.
