Representative Kristen Arrington (D- Kissimmee) today presented HB 1467 on the floor of the Florida House of Representatives. The bill creates an overlay district; provides boundaries; provides an exception to general law; requires DBPR to issue special alcoholic beverage license to certain establishments; provides penalties; prohibits subsequent licensure application for specified period. The bill passed unanimously by a vote of 116-0.
“In 2019, the Florida Legislature approved HB 1099 which allowed for restaurants in the Downton Community Redevelopment District of Kissimmee to serve alcoholic beverages,” said Representative Arrington. “HB 1467 would expand that area to include restaurants in the Vine Street Community Redevelopment District of Kissimmee. I am pleased to help small businesses of our Historic Downtown and to serve the people of District 46.”
The bill will now be sent to the Senate for approval before heading the Governor’s desk for signature.
