Florida voters approved to cap non-homestead tax increases 10 years ago. The cap has been in place for the past decade and it has helped our economy grow. Vote "YES" on Amendment 2 to keep the tax cap in place, and keep Florida working. 



The attached two letters signed by the leadership of our Realtor boards across the state were sent to Senators Nelson and Rubio to lend our strong support for this year’s Water Resources and Development Act (WRDA) package, S. 2800, America’s Water Infrastructure Act of 2018. This legislation includes funding authorization for critical pieces of the Central Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP) which will help address the blue green algae blooms contaminating Florida’s waterways and beaches. Please also make your voice heard to support this effort to save our communities.

The National Association of REALTORS (NAR) will launch a national Call For Action (CFA) on June 18th targeting the United States Senate and House of Representatives and needs your help to drive messages to the Hill!


If Congress fails to take action to reauthorize the NFIP, it will expire by July 31, 2018.

*REALTOR Participation for this NAR CFA will count towards the NAR President's Cup.*

NAR is currently conducting a Call for Action with our Commercial members in support of HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act.
This bipartisan bill adds a crucial "notice-and-cure" provision to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), giving business owners an opportunity to fix an alleged violation before costly legal proceedings are initiated. Currently, attorneys around the country are taking advantage of the ADA's lack of a notice requirement, filing lawsuits indiscriminately against commercial property owners, often for minor, easily corrected infractions. The property owners must then either settle or use their time and money on legal proceedings - resources that could have instead gone to fixing the alleged violation.
HR 620 would restore the integrity of the ADA by curbing these abusive practices and incentivizing business owners to quickly correct ADA infractions. For more information on this bill, see NAR's issue summary on ADA Lawsuit Reform here.

CALL FOR ACTION - February 9, 2018
Update on CFA: 
Thursday, February 15th, the House passed HR 620, the ADA Education and Reform Act, by a vote of 225-192. The "yea" votes included ten Democrats. NAR strongly supports this bill, and ahead of the vote engaged in an advocacy campaign to help its passage.
HR 620 is a bipartisan bill that adds a crucial "notice-and-cure" period to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), giving business owners accused of a violation the opportunity to fix it before a costly legal process begins. In recent years, a small group of attorneys have taken advantage of the ADA's lack of a notice requirement and filed lawsuits indiscriminately against commercial property owners under the ADA. Those business owners, who often in good faith believe that they are in compliance, then have the choice of paying a settlement or hiring an attorney and taking the time to deal with a costly legal proceeding.
Now that HR 620 has passed the House, we will move on to focus on companion legislation in the Senate.
