To: Governor Ron DeSantis

Governor Scott - Veto Florida's Foreclosure Act - HB 87

The Foreclosure Act just passed on May 3rd was passed illegally and unconstitutionally. The House Civil Justice Committee passed the bill on Feb. 7th, before the Legislature was in session, contrary to Article III, Section 3 of Florida's Constitution

Also, Henry Trawick, the Dean of Florida Legal Procedure, has written analyses of both HB 87 and SB 1666, pointing out the multiple unconstitutional provisions of the bill.

Why is this important?

The Florida Legislature has used illegal and unconstitutional tactics to pass this bad bill. The Legislature failed to adhere to the requirements of Florida's Constitution. If the Governor signs this bill, there will be litigation initiated to defeat this illegal and unconstitutional bill which litigation will be unnecessarily costly to Florida.
The bill is unconstitutional and the process used to pass it was unconstitutional.
