The 2019 Legislative Conference Debrief
2019 on "the Hill"
In the afterglow of the 2019 Legislative Conference, the AAGO team has been reflecting on the level of success we've been able to achieve through our association's continued advocacy efforts. Each year,
This year's legislative priorities are critical and complex. The AAGO team was absolutely blown away by our member's abilities to clearly and professionally vocalize the importance of creating a consistency in the impact fee collection process, express the trepidation behind the enaction of mandatory inclusionary zoning practices, highlight the need to reserve the Sadowski Affordable Housing Trust Fund exclusively for Florida housing programs, and simplify the difference between service animals and emotional support animals.
Feel like you need a refresher on the 2019 legislative priorities?
Here's what some of the AAGO members had to say:
"It is a priority of mine to attend Legislative Days each and every year. It is critical to
lobby for the issues that are affecting our industry."
-James Cornell, Skinner Waste Solutions
-Julie Smith, Highlands Viera West Apartments
"I have gone to Tallahassee more years than I can recall and this year, more than any I can remember was inspirational, impactful and effective."
-Lori Trainer, Pinnacle
"Informative and educational. Fun too!"
"The 2019 Legislative Conference gave me the opportunity to connect with many different peers in our industry, learn more about our legislative initiatives, and meet (and hopefully make an impact on) several new legislators."
-Meredith Torres, Greystar
An ENORMOUS thank you goes to all of our member's who helped make this year's Legislative Conference a success.
