What to know about the controversial business leasing law

A new law passed by the Florida Legislature would let businesses that lease cars and trucks to people without permits get around the state’s existing law.

The bill passed the House on Wednesday and the Senate on Thursday.

The Florida Automobile Dealers Association has opposed the bill, arguing it would create a new class of businesses that would be too small to survive.

But it has not opposed the House version.

Florida Gov.

Rick Scott, a Republican, says the bill is necessary to help small businesses and that he plans to sign it.

Scott has been an advocate of state-run car-leasing companies since he became governor in 2015.

He has said he wants to give them a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

The law, which takes effect next year, has caused confusion among Florida’s auto dealers and many companies.

The state’s auto industry association, the Florida Auto Dealers Alliance, says it has been in negotiations with Florida lawmakers about the bill and will soon file an opposition brief.

It has been nearly a year since the Legislature passed a similar bill in the Florida House, but it is still unclear whether that bill will make it to Scott’s desk.

In a letter sent to lawmakers this month, Florida Auto Dealer Association Executive Director Michael J. Miller said the association would file an objection to the Senate bill.

“The new law does not allow Florida businesses to simply set up shop anywhere in the state,” Miller wrote.

“It would require businesses to be located in Florida.

This is a violation of the First Amendment.”

The law allows businesses to set up their own “operations centers” or “business-to-business” centers, which are typically the same as a storefront.

The law also allows the business to have more than one “employee” in a business.

A spokesman for Scott said Thursday that Scott has “no plans to support the bill” that was passed by Florida’s House.

Scott did not immediately return a call seeking comment.

The Associated Press first reported the new bill.
