Homestead Implementing Bills (Oppose) – Failed 

CS/HB 1105 (Caruso) and SB 1376 (Wright) are the implementing bills for HJR 1103 (Caruso) and SJR 1374 (Wright) if it is voter-approved and would allow newly established homestead property to be assessed at less than just value if the property was previously assessed as non-homestead property and has not changed ownership and authorizing residency requirements for homestead exemptions. CS/HB 1105 was amended to afford property owners to rescind an application to seek homestead exemption on their property within a specified time frame. (Chapman)
