2019 Legislative Fly-In Recap

FOAA hosted the 2019 Legislative Fly-In on February 12 & 13, 2019 in Tallahassee. Members attended an afternoon general session where our legislative team spoke on industry specific areas of interest to and provided updates and tips related to the 2019 Legislative Session. The next morning, members were able to meet and speak with several of Florida’s Senators and Representatives in an intimate setting. FOAA does not have any industry specific legislation under consideration this year. However, the FOAA Legislative team is continually monitoring the progress of certain legislative bills that could potentially serve as vehicles to amend industry specific language of interest to FOAA, should the opportunity arise. FOAA team members are also monitoring additional legislation with potential impact to the outdoor industry. (Photo attached)

FOAA – Rebuild 850 Partnership Spotlight

When Hurricane Michael made landfall on October 10, 2018, it was the strongest storm to ever hit the Florida Panhandle, with wind speeds of up to 155 mph. The storm moved quickly, prompting the evacuation of 140,000 people just one day after reaching hurricane status. In one more day, the storm would be gone, leaving at least 43 dead in Florida and destroying whole towns. The recovery from Michael is anything but fast, with estimated damage of at least $5 billion. REBUILD 850 was launched in November 2018 to keep North Florida’s recovery front and center and to marshal ongoing support. REBUILD 850 is co-chaired by former Florida House Speakers Allan Bense and Will Weatherford (both huge proponents of FOAA) and former U.S. Representative Gwen Graham. Because FOAA already has a public service network in place with our members throughout the state, we were ready to assist. On behalf of the current Chair of the FOAA Board of Directors, Ed Bolter, and our members, the association offered the assistance of the outdoor advertising industry in promoting Rebuild 850. FOAA would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to our members who help make this partnership such a success!
