Tallahassee â€“ Florida Senate President Don Gaetz (R-Niceville) today released the statement below, following the Florida Senate Committee on Transportation unanimously passing Senate Bill 156 by Senator Joe Negron (R-Stuart). Senate Bill 156 would provide tax relief to Florida's families through a reduction in Motor Vehicle License Fees.
"The Senate has a history of strong support for this legislation. During the 2013 Legislative Session, Senator Negron sponsored and an overwhelmingly bipartisan majority of the Senate supported a similar bill to reduce the annual burden of vehicle registration fees. I'm confident that 2014 will be the year we can finally make this tax relief a reality for every Floridian who drives a car, and I'm hopeful this legislation will be the foundation of a 2014 Tax Relief Package that will benefit hardworking Floridians across our state."
