Sen. Negron (R-Palm City): Pro-Israel Florida bill penalizes companies trading with Cuba

 

State Senator Joe Negron (R-Palm City)

From The Tampa Tribune: The cold war between the U.S. and Cuba may be nearing an end but at least one remnant survives in Florida law, threatening corporations with penalties if they do business with the Communist nation.

Senate Bill 86, sponsored by Republican Sens. Joe Negron of Palm City and Don Gaetz of Destin, passed a subcommittee vote Tuesday by unanimous vote…

While the sponsors were aware the language had been found to be unconstitutional, “they did not find the ruling struck down that particular provision and for that reason Senator Negron’s bill would maintain current law as it pertains to Cuba.”
