Dear friends,

The 2012 Legislative Session is in full swing and we are working together with our legislative leaders to enact meaningful reforms this year. We must do everything we can to root out fraud and eliminate any and all regulatory or procedural barriers that stifle job creation and economic growth. These goals are driven by one mission: to keep more of your hard-earned dollars in your pocket, where it belongs.

These reforms impact our licensed and future licensed community by reducing burdensome restrictions, procedures, and costs associated with certain license types. Many of these reforms will update antiquated laws to today's standards as well as ensure an even playing field within the industry. We are already implementing process improvements regarding examinations that will be a cost savings and keep more of your money in your pocket.

We will continue to provide you with the most up to date information on these reforms via this newsletter, as well as provide email updates when changes take place. Be sure to verify your contact information is current so that you won't miss any information regarding important changes that impact how you manage your business. Be sure to check the In The Know section for any updates thus far and guidance on verifying your contact information.

As always, we are interested in hearing your valuable feedback so that we can continue to serve you better.

Thank you,
Jeff Atwater
Chief Financial Officer
State of Florida
