HB 7003 — OGSR/State Boxing Commission
by Government Operations Subcommittee and Rep. Rizo (SB 7026 by Regulated Industries Committee)

Prepared by: Regulated Industries Committee (RI)
The bill saves from repeal the public records exemption for proprietary confidential business information provided by a promoter to the Florida State Boxing Commission (commission) or through an audit of the promoter’s books and records. In current law, a “promoter” is any person, and includes any officer, director, employee, or stockholder of a corporate promoter, who produces, arranges, or stages any match involving a professional. Within seventy-two hours after a match, the promoter of that match must file a written report with the commission. The promoter’s report must include information about the number of tickets sold, the amount of gross receipts, and any other facts that the commission requires.
This public records exemption would stand repealed on October 2, 2021, unless it is reenacted by the Legislature under the Open Government Sunset Review Act. The bill removes the scheduled repeal to continue the confidential and exempt status of the information.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect October 1, 2021.
