Florida senators’ bill would extend Canadian visitor stays

Real Estate Agent with One World Realty Inc. SL675447

 U.S. Sens. Bill Nelson and Marco Rubio introduced legislation that would allow retired Canadian citizens older than 50 to spend up to eight months a year vacationing in the U.S. – two months longer than they may stay now.

In announcing the bill, the senators cite figures form the Canadian embassy claiming that Canadians visiting Florida contribute more than $4 billion each year to the state's economy.

To change the law, Congress would need to pass the bill and the president must sign it. If that happens, the bill would allow Canadian citizens over the age of 50 who either own or rent a residence in the U.S. to remain in the country for up to 240 days each year. The bill expressly prohibits these visitors from working for American employers or seeking public assistance while in the U.S.

We have some Swedes in one of our condos now. Foreign vacationers are a big boost to the economy.
