Cesar Vargas and Noa Olcha sat down with Richie Kidwell, the President of the Restoration Association of Florida. They go on to discuss two new bills (SB2D and SB4D) that will change the way you do business!
We talked about how these bills single out Florida contractors. They restrict them from being able to perform standard marketing tactics and grow their business.
From the Restoration Association of Florida website:
