Preemption of Paid Leave Clears First Committee

The Florida House’s Local and Federal Affairs Committee met this evening to debate State Representative Steven Precourt’s (R-Orlando) paid leave preemptive measure, House Bill 655. The 18-member committee, by a vote of 10 to 7 and 1 excused, passed the bill allowing it to be sent onto the next stop, the House State Affairs Committee. The FRLA is actively engaged in this legislation and will continue to provide updates as the bill is scheduled to be heard in committee in both the House and the Senate.
