WHEREAS, the Office of the Governor issued Executive Order 05-139 on July 7, 2005, declaring the existence of a state of emergency as a result and consequence of the serious threat posed to the public health, safety, and property in the State of Florida; and

WHEREAS, on July 10, 2005, Hurricane Dennis passed near the Keys and West Coast of the State of Florida, made landfall on the panhandle of the State of Florida, caused millions of dollars worth of damage to property and rendered homes and other buildings unsuitable for use and habitation; and

WHEREAS, there exists a critical need to provide for the roofing of homes and other buildings damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Dennis; and

WHEREAS, the effects of Hurricane Dennis, alone and in combination with the continuing recovery efforts from Hurricanes Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne, have aggravated the critical need for roofing of homes and other buildings damaged as a result of one or more of the hurricanes in an expanded geographical area of the State of Florida;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, JEB BUSH, as Governor of Florida, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article IV, 1(a) of the Florida Constitution and by the Florida Emergency Management Act, as amended, and all other applicable laws, do hereby promulgate the following Executive Order, to take immediate effect:

Section 1. The provisions of Section 489.113(3), Florida Statutes, are suspended to the extent that a certified or registered general, building, or residential contractor is not required to subcontract roofing work for the repair and installation of roofs made of wood shakes, or asphalt or fiberglass shingles.

Section 2. This Executive Order suspends the provisions of Section 489.113(3), Florida Statutes, to the extent provided in Section 1 in all counties in the State of Florida.

Section 3. This Executive Order supersedes and replaces the suspension of Section 489.113(3), Florida Statutes, by Executive Orders 04-188, 04-197, 04-241, 05-56, and 05-103, provided that all permits issued pursuant to the prior Executive Orders shall be allowed to be completed.

Section 4. Pursuant to Section 252.36(2), Florida Statutes, this Executive Order shall expire sixty (60) days from the date hereof unless extended, provided that any work not completed under permits issued pursuant to this Executive Order may be finished notwithstanding the expiration of this Executive Order.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Florida to be affixed, at Tallahassee, the Capitol, this 19th day of July, 2005.
