Call to Action

Real Estate Agent with ERA Suncoast Realty

A call to Action as received by me in an e-mail from John Sebree FAR


Legislators return to Tallahassee this week for a special session to address a shortfall in the state budget. Realtors recognize the impact our industry has on Florida's economy, and how slowing sales activity has contributed to the lack of revenue in the state coffers.

Just a few years ago, Florida enjoyed a $4 billion budget surplus that was the direct result of doc stamp revenues and sales tax receipts that flowed in from a robust real estate market. We need to send the message to legislators that they need to take immediate action to reinvigorate our economy through appropriating Sadowski funds to stimulate housing.  And, during the next special session later this month, legislators need to take all actions necessary to ensure that property tax relief will be on the January 29 ballot.  By clicking here you will be able to send a personalized message to your legislators. 

Thank you for standing strong for our industry and the property owners of Florida.

I think Michigan was saved by the bell.  We almost closed down the govnt'm due to budget.  Have to check the news but I think we didn't close as yet (just increased taxes when home values keep going down, down, down!

Dear Nick,

Thank you for the tip.  I was just forwarding the information that I received directly from John Sebree.  I have added the tag information for which the source came.  I am not sure why the link would include my information....when I clicked on it it was the same one you sent me.  Must be a bug in the system.  Thanks for taking action!
