TALLAHASSEE – THE SECOND HALF
February 7, 2012
The Legislative Session of 2012 has reached the half-way point and time has run out for many bills. Such is the case with the Ordinary High Water Mark (HB 1103/ SB1362). Crowded agendas and committees which will no longer meet mean that bills cannot be heard; thus they are termed “dead.”
But, there is good news with the septic systems bill (SB 820/HB 999). Last night, SB 820 was placed on the agenda of the Budget Subcommittee on Health and Human Services Appropriations. The committee meets on Thursday morning, February 9 at 8:30 am.
Once again, property rights advocates are called upon to contact committee members to express your support for this bill affecting 2.67 million property owners with septic systems. Please take a moment and send an email to the committee members listed below saying you would appreciate their favorable vote!
Thanks for your action; it is making a difference! Thanks to you, this bill has passed unanimously in both Senate committees where it has been heard. CPR will be there on Thursday and report back to you!
Chair: Senator Joe Negron (R)
Vice Chair: Senator Nan H. Rich (D)
