The State Affairs Committee of the Florida House of Representatives has announced that it will hold a public workshop during the interim committee week of October 5-9, for the purpose of taking testimony on the following questions:
- Should the Legislature enact new laws to address conflicts between landowners and boaters who anchor near the landowners’ property?
- If so, what approach should the Legislature take?
- Is the establishment of setbacks, which prohibit vessels from anchoring or mooring within a certain distance from the shoreline or seawalls, a viable approach?
The specific date and time of the meeting will be announced at least a week prior to the meeting. Should you have comments or suggestions, please contact Stephen James at (850) 922-4300 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
