Bert Harris Property Rights Bills
CS/SB 1776 significantly amended
CS/HB 519 up on Thursday
Urge House Committee to OPPOSE
This FLC-supported amendment completely removed the concept of applying Bert Harris settlements to all similarly situated residential properties. In addition, the bill, as amended, makes no changes to the current attorney fee provision, nor does it allow the recovery of business damages.
Please thank Senator Tom Lee and Senator David Simmons for their efforts amending the bill to address multiple concerns raised by FLC.
Thank you to all those who contacted members of the committee. CS/SB 1766 will next go to the
Senate Community Affairs Committee
. It should be noted that the House companion bill CS/HB 519 continues to have all of the provisions opposed by FLC.
