New Laws Take Effect In Florida

The State of Florida has quite a few new laws going into effect today, July 1, 2014.  Over the last sessions the Florida House and Senate sent up 255 bills for signature or veto by Governor Rick Scott. All of them were signed by the Governor except one.  That one was vetoed (Senate Bill 392) which was written to give Florida’s Department of Transportation the ability to increase speed limits by 5 miles per hour on certain roads across the state.

Other laws address issues with electronic cigarettes, military license plates, the FL G.I. Bill, and providing more transparency of charity spending.

The local paper, Florida Today, provided a summary of several of the laws. Read more about it on their website.
