Oops…Florida lawmakers scramble to repeal foreign driving law
By Lloyd Dunkelberger and Michael Pollick, Sarasota Herald-Tribune
Gov. Rick Scott and state lawmakers said they will work to alter or overturn a new law that requires Canadian and other foreign travelers to obtain international permits to drive in Florida.
The law, passed last year by the Legislature and signed by Scott, could be amended as early as March, when lawmakers officially convene. Typically, state laws go into effect in either July or October.
