Governor Signs Home-Based Businesses Bill

Date: June 30, 2021

On Tuesday, Gov. Ron DeSantis signed House Bill 403, legislation that would ease the regulatory burden on home-based businesses. The bill passed the Florida Legislature in April.

NFIB State Executive Director Bill Herrle thanked the governor for signing the bill and making it easier for entrepreneurs to create and run small businesses out of their homes.

“Small business is the foundation of Florida’s economy, and a lot of those businesses began in people’s homes, in their garages or around the kitchen table,” Herrle said. “We believe entrepreneurs have a right to create and operate businesses at home as long as those businesses don’t bother their neighbors or violate local zoning ordinances.

“House Bill 403 will stop local governments from creating a patchwork quilt of confusing and conflicting rules and regulations that would affect home-based businesses beyond ordinary zoning laws and homeowners’ association rules.”
