Article on HB 1013 in Miami Herald
Today’s Miami Herald has an article, by Toluse Olorunnipa, about the ongoing battle over HB1013. The Governor’s office has received over 1,000 emails in recent days opposing the legislation. Opposition to the legislation outnumbers the supporters by a nearly 4-1 margin. Per Governor Scott’s deputy press secretary “The Governor is currently reviewing the bill and will make a decision in the allotted timeframe.” The whole article is worth reading here. As usual proponents of the legislation throw out the phrase "judicial activism" which completely ignores that the entire implied warranty was created by the judiciary to overcome another judicial doctrine, caveat emptor. I have discussed the merits of the bill on numerous posts on the blog so I will not repeat them. I know the Governor’s office has been in touch with proponents and opponents of the bill to obtain information. The best thing to do at this point is to continue contacting Governor Scott’s office and express opposition to the bill.
