Today, Senator David Simmons (R-Altamonte Springs), along with the Florida Senate, advanced the paid leave preemption bill to 3rd reading and defended against a hostile amendment. Passage of paid leave preemption will avert a patchwork of local ordinances, preventing confusion and compliance nightmares for businesses throughout the state.
The House bill, sponsored by Rep. Stephen Precourt (R-Orlando), passed the House of Representatives with a vote of 75 yeas and 43 nays.
FRLA would like to thank Senator Simmons for his hard work and dedication on such a vital issue for businesses in Florida.
