HB 697 - Relating to Impact Fees

On Wednesday, February 28th, HB 697 by Representative Mike Miller (R- Orlando) was read for a second time on the House floor. 

An amendment, 403787; that threatened to strip language in the bill relating to sector plans, providing that sector plans be treated in a similar fashion to other development projects when implementing impact fees offered by Representative Cord Byrd (R-Jacksonville) was defeated.

HB 697 was rolled to third reading.

AIF supports legislation that ensures the same protections to sector plans against demanding payment or construction of facilities beyond those needed to service the development.
