Last week, Governor Ron DeSantis took an important step in protecting Florida’s sportsmen by signing Senate Bill 214 into law.
SB 214 prohibits payment settlement entities, merchant acquiring entities, and third-party settlement organizations from assigning merchant category codes (MCC) or otherwise classifying merchants of firearms or ammunition separately from general merchandise or sporting goods retailers.
Florida’s 2023 legislative session adjourned earlier this month and the Sportsmen’s Alliance is continuing to monitor activities in the Sunshine State as you never know when issues that sportsmen need to be aware of may arise.
