To all CRA and CRA partners, Senate Bill 1770 will be heard in committee today, and House Bill 13 will be heard tomorrow.
Please contact your Senators and Representatives and let them know that CRAs are one of the most effective tools that cities have for revitalization, and ask that they oppose the prohibition on the creation of new CRAs and also oppose the severe restriction on the use of CRA funds that will make CRAs much less effective.
More information is included in the attached alert from the Florida League of cities, including Senator and Representative contact information.
