CS-HB 93 – Homelessness | Florida Law for Homeless

One can only wonder how much of this money will make it to the homeless population and others wonder how long before today’s “donation” becomes “tax.”

In an effort to obtain “donations” to combat the homeless problem the Republican government of Florida, already plagued with Allied Veterans corruption is now wasting tax dollars to create more government ran programs that should be as simple as “make a donation to Habitat for Humanity.”  As you read below, please consider the time and resources we, as citizens, put into creating another loophole for Floirda Republican leaders to focus money towards their chosen benefactors. when amazing groups such as Habitat for Humanity could always use some additional hands or resources.
