CFO Patronis Statement on Passage of the Florida Veterans Act

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued a statement on the passage of the Florida Veterans Protection Act, Senate Bill 294 by Senator Tom Wright, from the Senate Floor. This legislation will help protect veterans by adding the victimization of 10 or more veterans as an aggravated white-collar crime.
 
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Veterans are twice as likely to be targeted for scams than you or me. It’s unconscionable that anyone would target and steal from the brave men and women who served our nation so admirably. This legislation better protects our veterans by cracking down on criminals who scam Florida’s veterans. I’m thankful for Senator Tom Wright and for Representative Bobby Payne for championing this important legislation.”
