Statement by Floridians for Fair Business Practices
Regarding Governor Scott’s veto of Senate Bill 106
“Floridians for Fair Business Practices would like to thank our coalition members and supporters, sponsors Senate President Pro Tempore Anitere Flores and Representative Bryan Avila, as well as lawmakers in the House and Senate who have advocated for a repeal of Florida’s outdated alcohol separation law.
We have made tremendous progress in the last four years and there is a clear momentum in Florida for this common-sense approach to liquor sales. While Governor Scott ultimately chose to veto Senate Bill 106, we look forward to working with state leaders in the future to finally put an end to this outdated, Prohibition-era law.”
Floridians for Fair Business Practices is a coalition of retailers and business groups whose purpose is to identify rules and regulations which prohibit the growth and expansion of Florida businesses. For additional information, please visit www.FairBizinFlorida.com.
