We received the below information from the NPRRA on Tuesday, September 27, 2016.
Florida Senate Bill 1104 was signed into law by Florida Governor Rick Scott on April 1, 2016. The bill allows a financial institution authorized by state or federal law to designate with the Department of State a place or registered agent as the sole location to receive service of process. Service of Process may be made on any officer, director or business agent of the financial institution at its principal place of business, or at any other branch, office or place of business in the state, if a financial institution has no registered agent. The bill becomes effective January 1, 2017.
