Important Update from the Florida League of Cities
Update on Financial Disclosures
and Short-term Rentals
Senate Financial Disclosures Bill Passes Senate
CS/CS/SB 774 (Brodeur) relating to Financial Disclosures, passed the full Senate this afternoon by a vote of 35-5. The bill was amended yesterday to add the Form 6 requirement to members of the Commission on Ethics. CS/CS/SB 774 will go next to the House of Representatives.
The House companion bill, CS/CS/HB 37 (Roach) passed its last committee of reference yesterday. CS/CS/HB 37 was amended to remove the Form 6 requirement for city and county managers. The bill will now be available for consideration by the full House. We expect it be heard on the House floor within the next week.
If this bill becomes law, the Form 6 requirement would go into effect for elected municipal officials on January 1, 2024.
Short-term Rentals Bill Passes House Committee
CS/HB 833 (Duggan) relating to Short-term Rentals passed the House Ways and Means Committee this afternoon by a vote of 13-11. Since no amendments were filed to address municipal concerns, the League remains opposed to the bill.
The League will keep you updated on future developments.
