Broward Days February 28, 2019

MIASF is once again participating in Broward Days, an independent, nonprofit, and nonpartisan organization that advocates for the diverse needs and concerns of the citizens of Broward County. As leaders of the Marine Industry Impact Team, MIASF will be in Tallahassee March 12th and 13th meeting with members of the House and Senate, as well as agency heads and policy decision makers, to discuss issues of importance to the marine industry, such as a reduction in the current sales tax cap on refit and repair, a transportation study regarding the need for a 45’ bascule bridge over the New River to accommodate high-speed commuter rail and potentially Tri-Rail Coastal Link, and a funding request for the Marine Research Hub. The Florida Legislative Session begins March 5th and ends May 3rd.
