1. Contact your State Senator and advocate her/him to support full portability.

Meldon Lecture Hall, 3160 PGA Blvd., Palm Beach Gardens). Please
attend one of his meetings and voice your support for portability.

which would take years to activate and create additional hurdles.
Let us work towards having SOH Portability placed on the November ballot
so that the citizens of Florida can have a chance to vote in favor of property
tax reform. I am confident that with your support we can prevail and remove a major
financial tax burden and re-ignite the recovery of the housing market.
Rep. Carl J. Domino
