Every year, Florida’s businesses and newspapers must fend off legislative attacks that would eliminate the multiple requirements for publishing public notices in Florida newspapers, posting notices on newspapers’ websites and placing them in one single place – FloridaPublicNotices.com – and, instead, place the information on either a governmental website or one of the innumerable “publicly-accessible” websites.
The effect? Floridians will be forced to scour a vast and rapidly growing number of websites across the Internet to find a single public notice impacting them.
This would replace the current system which boasts the broadest dissemination of public notice with a single hard-to-find notification.
These efforts keep public notice transparent and have made Florida a model state for the publishing and posting of this critical information.
Tell Florida lawmakers not to shut the door on transparency. Keep public notice in newspapers, on newspapers’ websites and on one single website – FloridaPublicNotices.com. Keep public notice in the SUNSHINE!
