Want Construction Economic Stimulus? Write Your Legislators


I blogged recently about House Bill 337 and its companion Senate Bill 576, both of which would codify and potentially expand public/private partnership construction opportunities in Florida. My blog caught the attention of Ben Wolford, a reporter for the Naples Daily News, who wrote about the prospects the bills provide. However, as Ben noted in his article, many people still seem not to be aware of this pending legislation and the bills could die in legislative committees if legislators are not informed of the importance of the bills to their voters. Read Ben’s article and the text of the bills and, if you agree about the economic push they can provide to our Florida construction industry, get behind the bills and let your legislators know about it. You can find a list of senators by district and their contract information here and can find your local representative here.


In the meantime, let us know your thoughts about this proposed legislation or any ideas you may have for supporting it or reasons for opposing it.
