One of my recent blog entries discussed House Bill 849, a welcome product of Florida’s 2011 legislative session.  House Bill 849 created new Florida Statute Section 514.0315, which  gives pool owners the option of installing any of five different types of equipment in order to meet the requirements of the Virginia Graeme Baker Act.

The legislature forwarded this bill to Florida’s Governor for approval and our Governor signed 849 into law on Friday, June 24.

The provisions of this new law  will become effective on July 1, 2011.
