TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - A bill that would allow the state to seek restitution for property and money Nazi's took from Holocaust victims during World War II is on its way to Gov. Rick Scott.
The measure (HB 913) unanimously passed the Senate on Friday, a week after the House unanimously passed it.
The bill would let the Department of Financial Services seek restitution for Holocaust victims and their heirs for Nazi-confiscated bank accounts, art and property.
The measure was one of Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater's legislative priorities.
