SB 1196 Passes

Unfortunately SB 1196 passed the Senate yesterday. The next step for the bill will be the governor’s desk. The only way the bill does not become law at this point is if the governor vetoes it. If he signs it or merely does nothing the bill becomes law and will take effect, by its terms, on July 1, 2012. The negative impact of this legislation will be substantial for Florida homeowner’s.

However, it is fairly certain that there will be challenges to the legislation. How effective the challenges will be remains to be seen. What impact, if any, the legislation has on the Maronda case pending before the Florida Supreme Court will also be interesting.
