Winners

Mark Anderson — He may have had the hottest lobbying hand this year, winning four long and hard-fought battles. Anderson finally killed the “home tax” and got an estoppel bill through the Legislature that won’t harm homeowners and associations. He saved the non-custodial parent employment program, even after the House eliminated it from its budget and the Senate agreed during conferences, by being the only lobbyist to participate in public testimony during budget conferences, a bold move that saved funding. Anderson also helped secure a 60 percent increase for the ABLE Grant program and ensure the Florida Holocaust Museum sustained no funding reductions.
