Adam Hasner, who lead Florida’s 2010 PACE legislation as the Republican Leader of the Florida House of Representatives has written a strong and thoughtful op-ed piece in the Sun Sentinel that is a direct answer to critics of PACE.
David Gabrielson, PACENation’s Executive Director, notes, “We continue to see strong Republican support for PACE, because it’s a state and local government initiative, creates local jobs, unlocks private capital, and is voluntary — giving property owners control without impacting other taxpayers.” Gabrielson went on to say that “PACE is uniquely positioned to help bring private capital to rebuild hurricane ravaged homes. Bolstered consumer protections at the state level, led by industry and recent state legislation (see California’s AB 1284 and SB 242) will help ensure that homeowners receive all the benefits from PACE financing”.
We continue to see strong Republican support for PACE — 14 Republican Governors have signed PACE bills into law — as it is state and local led, creates domestic jobs, unlocks private capital, and requires no taxes or subsidies.
