You've got to be kidding...Board Members Criminal Liability
Get ready for next week. Two bad proposed laws are set to be heard on Monday and Tuesday.
Senate Bill (SB) 610 creates Criminal Felony exposure for Board Members - this Bad Bill is up for debate this Tuesday 4/2/19 in the Senate's Innovation, Industry, and Technology Committee. Board members arrested and criminally prosecuted for not responding in time to a records request. Does that sound reasonable or fair to you???
Vote NO to SB 610
If a Board Member does not respond to a records request within the time provided, the Board Member may be guilty of a 3rd Degree FELONY. Your association will then be hiring and paying for Criminal Defense lawyers. Absurd!!!
This proposed unreasonable Law would expose you, our volunteer board members to criminal prosecution. Perhaps, they ought to make the penalty stoning? This Bad Bill will ultimately lead to frivolous and expensive lawsuits.
Please email the below THIS weekend!
I urge you to OPPOSE SB 610. SB 610 mandates felonies to volunteer board members for insignificant mistakes and exposes non-profit community associations to frivolous and expensive lawsuits. Please OPPOSE SB 610 when it comes before the Criminal Justice Committee and protect Florida's community associations.
