Pictures will be available. The 2022 Legislative Session is right around the corner. You can speak with our leaders about issues you see at hand during this event.
Why join the FHBPAC 1000 Club?
FHBPAC is the Florida Home Builders Political Action Committee
The voice of the building industry is paramount. For years the Political Action Committee has supported candidates and issues that support you.
Because of the support of those who contribute to PAC, we are able to make calls to our legislation when impact fees are raised 300% in one of our cities last year- during a pandemic. Now, a bill sits on the Governor’s desk that will ensure the building industry, and future homeowners will not receive this double taxation of paying an extraordinary impact fees. This bill will ensure that impact fees do not go up more than 50% in 4 years, no more than 12.5% a year. It also cleans up the language to ensure impact fee dollars are used for infrastructure.
Other bills this year that will help our industry include Apprenticeship programs, so we can get tools in the hands of students, ensuring permits are approved in a specific time from the building departments, residential property insurance to stop these false claims, and of course the Florida Building Code bill which will discourage local governments from bypassing the local technical amendment process to the Florida Building Code by allowing an affected party the opportunity to submit a complaint to the Florida Building Commission for a non-binding advisory opinion.
