PBPost: 150 new laws take effect in Florida on July 1

According to a new law effective July 1, Floridians who prefer to tool around the neighborhood in speedy golf carts — aka “low-speed vehicles” — don’t have to register them anymore, saving money on insurance and registration fees. The law was pushed by legislators representing The Villages, the massive Central Florida retirement community where the golf carts are widely used. (Source: HTPolitics)

More than 150 new laws passed by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott take effect Monday. They include the state’s $74.1 billion budget, with $480 million that legislators set aside for teacher pay raises.

An overhaul of high school graduation standards, changes in golf cart registration/insurance, an attempt to ban bongs, and additional restrictions on abortion are on a long list of new Florida laws that take effect July 1.
