The Senate Commerce & Tourism Committee and the House Civil Justice & Claims Subcommittee will hear SB 466 and HB 775, respectively on Monday March 27 and Tuesday March 28. While FADA, AutoNation and the factories are still working on a compromise of the percentage of compensation in this legislation, a non-stakeholder, Associated Industries of Florida (AIF), has issued a statement of opposition as it “intervenes in a contractual agreement”. Florida has regulated the relationship between dealers and factories through the franchise law for over 40 years, as dealers cannot negotiate contracts and to protect the interests of the citizens and businesses of Florida. FADA wishes to advise dealers of AIF’s position.
