Dear Affordable Housing Advocates,
Now is the time to make your voices heard! Make a request to the Governor to line item veto the sweep of the Housing Trust Funds to general revenue.
The Governor will be receiving the budget shortly and will then decide what line items to veto before signing into law. We’re requesting a line item veto of the $125 million sweep of housing trust funds.
To be clear, we are NOT asking the Governor to sweep any monies going to the Panhandle/Hurricane Michael help.

A line item veto from you would:
Governor DeSantis, you have distinguished yourself as a leader on this issue. We need you to put a stop to the tradition of sweeping the trust funds by using your line item veto authority to help us out of the housing crisis in Florida.
