This week, during the Commissioner Comments zoom interview, Jen Ahearn-Koch mentioned a bill that is of importance to the community. The CS/HB 403 Home-based Businesses Bill made it through the legislative process this month and is awaiting to be submitted to the Governor.
Cmmr Ahearn-Koch stresses the importance of being able to regulate home-based businesses in residential neighborhoods. Otherwise, hours of operation, signage, storage, traffic, and other issues will not be regulated, which could be incredibly impactful to communities. Therefore, she urges residents to send a letter to Gov. DeSantis asking to veto such bill.
