HB503 May Affect Permits Scheduled to Expire

HB503: Florida Legislature Adopts Additional Two-Year Extension for Permits and Local Development Orders; Refund of Fees Charged by Local Governments for Prior Extensions

On March 8, 2012, the Florida Legislature adopted HB503 (The "Bill"), introducing a number of amendments to existing laws related to environmental regulation and real estate development.

The Bill now awaits the signature of the Governor. If adopted into law, it will take effect July 1, 2012.

If you have a current permit or development order which is scheduled to expire between January 1, 2012 and January 1, 2014, or if you were previously charged a fee for a state permit extension in the past year, you may be affected by The Bill.
