CFO Jimmy Patronis: Passage of COVID Liability Protections A Huge Win for Florida
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement applauding the passage of Proyecto de Ley del Senado 72. The legislation, which now heads to Governor Ron DeSantis for signature, provides liability protections related to COVID-19 for Florida businesses and health care providers. The CFO has been fighting for COVID-19 liability protections since Mayo de 2020 and has made it his mission to ensure liability protections were passed this legislative session.
CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Florida made history today by passing vital COVID-19 liability protections for our businesses and our health care heroes. This is a huge win for Florida and a major step to get Florida’s economy back on its feet and ensure our state fully recovers from this pandemic. As my top priority this legislative session, I was proud to travel the state fighting for these critical protections. No doubt, this is the single most important piece of legislation that unifies families in our state and a huge milestone for businesses and health care workers who no longer have to live in fear of COVID-19 litigation. By passing this legislation, Tallahassee has shown tremendous leadership and given businesses the confidence they have needed to keep their doors open and serve their communities.

“I applaud all of the Legislators who fought for this historic legislation and committed themselves to protect Florida’s businesses and our frontline health care workers. A special thank you to all of the members who worked tirelessly to ensure this legislation passed including President Simpson, Speaker Sprowls, Senator Brandes, Representative McClure and Representative Burton. I look forward to the Governor receiving and signing this good bill and celebrating this historic milestone with Floridians.”
