Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today released the following statement attributed to its General Counsel Tammy Perdue in opposition to the advancement of Senate Bill 1354, by Senator Denise Grimsley (R-Sebring), which passed the Florida Senate Committee on Banking and Insurance.
“AIF opposes Senate Bill 1354, which would increase health care costs for Florida businesses through additional, onerous regulation.
“SB 1354 makes health care more expensive and actually impedes our mission to provide greater access to quality health care at more affordable costs for employers.
“As this bill now heads to the Senate floor, we encourage members to have a deliberative and thoughtful discussion on this legislative proposal that would create more red tape and higher costs for Florida businesses.”
