Florida legislature special session fast-tracking hurricane aid, toll relief

Homeowners ravaged by Hurricane Ian and Hurricane Nicole and toll-road commuters would get help in two bills that call for more than $1.25 billion in spending, as the Legislature meets this week in a special session. The Senate Community Affairs Committee on Monday unanimously backed a measure (SB 4-A) that would provide refunds for property taxes on homes made uninhabitable by the recent hurricanes.
