About Florida Realtors PAC


In politics, money talks, and Florida Realtors PAC gives us a voice. When Realtors speak through Florida Realtors PAC, Tallahassee listens. And the more money Florida Realtors PAC raises, the louder we speak.

Many times, Realtors’ greatest victories receive no notice and little fanfare. An oppressive bill could die quietly in committee; an amendment that creates a tax on Realtor commissions could be unceremoniously pulled. The Florida Legislature introduces more than 4,000 bills each year. Florida Realtors monitors each one and, when appropriate, works to influence the bill’s direction.

Florida Realtors PAC isn’t Republican; it isn’t Democrat; it doesn’t represent the independent voter; it doesn’t buy votes. It is simply a strong voice – and sometimes the only strong voice – fighting for Florida’s Realtors and homeowners in Tallahassee.

Without Florida Realtors PAC, your voice in Tallahassee falls silent.

What is a PAC?

Political Action Committees, or PACs, have been around since 1944 when the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) formed the first one to raise money for the re-election of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. PACs represent business, labor or ideological interests, and exist to raise and spend money to elect and defeat candidates. The PAC’s money must come from voluntary contributions from members. PACs may give to a candidate committee per election (primary, general, run-off or special). They may also give to any national party committee and annually to any other PAC. PACs may receive contributions from any one individual. In short, PACs merely represent a legal way for individuals to unite and ensure their voices are heard at all levels of government.
