During today’s Executive Clemency Meeting, Governor Ron DeSantis said he wanted to address COVID-19-related fines: “As we’ve seen, there’ve been unprecedented restrictions imposed on people, particularly at the local government level, on both individuals and businesses. I am moving for a remission of all the outstanding fines on individuals and businesses, in light of the fact that many of these restrictions, I think, have shown to be ineffective, and I think they’ve unfairly penalized people. I hereby move for a remission of all such fines.”
The motion passed 3-1, with Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried in dissent. The other two voting members are Attorney General Ashley Moody and Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis.
