AIF Applauds Senate Committee for Advancing Tort Reform Legislation

Tallahassee, Fla. – The Associated Industries of Florida (AIF) today released the following statement attributed to its President & CEO Brewster Bevis regarding Senate Bill 236 relating to Civil Remedies by Senator Travis Hutson. SB 236 today passed the Senate Committee on Fiscal Policy, its third committee of reference.

“AIF appreciates the Florida Senate for its efforts this week to quickly advance much-needed tort reform legislation. We applaud members of the Committee on Fiscal Policy for supporting these important policy changes that will help stop out-of-control lawsuit abuse in our state. By rebalancing Florida’s legal system, lawmakers are rightfully putting the interests of businesses and consumers above the profits of billboard lawyers. AIF will continue to stand in strong support of Florida’s leaders as they tackle our state’s toxic tort climate this session.”
