Amendment 4 implementation moving forward
By Ben Delman on April 27, 2017
Florida legislators continue working on a bill to enact Amendment 4. This would allow commercial buildings to add solar without raising their property taxes. This will allow more Floridians to benefit from solar. Amendment 4 passed last summer by a 73-27 margin.
Both the Florida Senate and House have bills moving through their respective legislative committees. Once all the relevant committees vote the bills will go before the full Senate and House. The Senate bill is SB 90 and the House bill is HB 1351.
The Senate and House bills contain separate language. Should both versions pass as is, the bills will have to be reconciled and then voted on again by both bodies.
