TALLAHASSEE, Fla - Plans are underway to repeal a new law requiring septic tank owners to have their tanks inspected every five years.
Tuesday state lawmakers pushed the start date from January to July.
Now legislation has been filed to do away with the inspections. The reason: tank owners say the 600 dollars inspections are too expensive.
State Senator Don Gaetz is sponsoring the legislation to repeal the inspections. "I'll be introducing legislation today on the Floor of the Senate to stop the implementation of the Septic tank mandate which is too costly, too intrusive and frankly was put into law the wrong way."
It's important to note that Senator Gaetz and many of the Republican lawmakers who are now against the law voted for it last session.
