One of the bills (HB 959) lawmakers passed and sent to the governor this session would prohibit local municipalities and state agencies from doing business with companies that are engaged in business dealings with Cuba or Syria. The bill also bars the State Board of Administration, from supporting by proxy any expansion of trade with Cuba or Syria.

More on that bill from the Capitol Hill Cubans blog via the News Service of Florida.
