CRA Legislation Moving Through 
2019 Florida Session

The Florida Senate Community Affairs committee approved a revised version (Committee Substitute) of the CRA bill, CS/SB 1054, on Tuesday, March 26. This version is now the latest Senate version of the bill. Many of the previously proposed limitations on CRA spending and operations were removed.    

However, there are aspects of both the Senate (revised) and House bills that we want to make sure everyone is aware of. CRAs would be required to comply with several new requirements under both bills: for creating, amending, funding, reporting and sunsetting their operations.  Check out the changes to the Senate bill (CS/SB 1054) here and the House bill (CS/HB 9) here.

Head to our  Redevelopment Works page for talking points, bill analyses, sample communications and other information about the bills. For interactive discussions about the specific language and possible impacts, visit MyFRA (our member forum site) at

As the legislative session moves forward,  we are grateful to legislative members who are helping us work through the impacts of these bills on CRA activities. Please continue to post all your great redevelopment news on social media and use the hashtag #RedevelopmentWorks to raise awareness about the importance of CRAs and the critical work they do to improve communities across Florida.
