Florida Senate bill would hike penalties for felon movers

A bill filed in the Florida Senate on Wednesday would hike penalties for moving companies who hire felons and give them access to customers’ homes and property.

Senate Bill 336, filed by Elkton Republican Sen. Travis Hutson, would amend statute related to residential movers, penalizing companies that fail to disclose in writing that a moving company employee with access to property has been convicted of a felony.

Each violation of the amended statute would be a Class IV civil penalty, requiring a fine of at least $10,000.

Companies that don’t pay these civil fines could have their registrations not renewed, if they don’t satisfy that obligation.
