"Dear Rep. _________: Please Oppose the Grant Amendments and Support the Moraitis Amendments to HB 841 on Wednesday. These Amendments remove critical safeguards adopted in committee that will protect Florida's 10 million homeowners who live in an Association from the proliferation of short term, transient rentals within our neighborhoods. Under the Grant Amendments, your homeowners' property rights will be will be rendered meaningless. Currently, homeowners transparently vote, in many cases by a super-majority vote, to adopt common sense deed restrictions within their communities to protect the property rights and property values of all homeowners. Under the Grant Amendments, those restrictions would NOT apply to commercial operators of short term, transient rentals. SUPPORT YOUR HOMEOWNERS and OPPOSE COMMERCIAL OPERATOR CARVE-OUTS. VOTE NO ON THE GRANT AMENDMENTS and YES ON THE MORAITIS AMENDMENTS TO HB 841. Thank you."
