Over the past week, two new co-sponsors joined as advocates for passage of HB 341, legislation designed to reinvigorate feature film production in Florida. COMPASS welcomes Florida State House Representatives John Cortes and Julio Gonzalez to the effort; we look forward to working with them both as the bill moves through committees.
We are just beginning to secure these commitments from House representatives but already have two Republican and three Democratic co-sponsors from around the state. As we prepare for the beginning of session, we will continue working to gain additional bi-partisan support in this chamber over the holidays.
Our two new co-sponsors are:
Democrat John Cortes represents District 43 of the Florida House, comprising the Kissimmee area in Osceola County.
Republican Julio Gonzalez represents District 74 of the Florida House, which includes Venice and Northport in Sarasota County.
