I've always found it best to read the actual statute or proposed statute.

Here is a link to the actual bill: PCB BPRS 13-03 An act relating to homeowners' associations

Don't count your chickens before they're hatched. My experience following the antics of state legislatures (and also information given to me directly by a personal friend who was a former state representative), of the hundreds of bills that wend their way through the legislature, few ever actually wind up on the governor's desk. Bills often pass this committee or that committee, but end up dying a natural death because they never get voted on by the full house or senate before the current session is over.

If the Florida Legislature works in a similar way to the Connecticut legislature what often happens is that when a bill does finally reach the full house floor it gets sent off to some committee that has nothing to do with the content of the bill and couldn't care less about it. The result is that it never comes up for debate in the committee before the committee deadline and simply dies.

Perhaps this won't happen in your case, but I've seen this happen too many times watching the progress of bills in the past. Good luck.

SC has the SC Horizontal Property Act which covers multi story condos. Some have tried to pass a bill for HOA's (townhouse and stand alone homes) but fortunately some (myself included), have been able to keep it from ever getting out of committee. Going on 3 years now and not expected to be called for a vote to get it out of committee any time soon. For all intensive purposes, it is dead.

I do this as I do not want politicians/bureaucrats controlling things. My experience says they often step on their own "toes" when trying thus quite often do more harm then good.
