State of Florida
OFFICE OF THE GOVERNOR
executive order number 06-180
(Emergency Management/Roofing Repair Extension)
WHEREAS, the State of Florida continues to recover from the cumulative impact of the 2005 hurricane season, beginning with Tropical Storm Arlene on June 11, 2005, followed by Hurricane(s) Dennis on July 10, 2005, Hurricane Katrina on August 25, 2005, Hurricane Rita on September 20, 2005, and culminating with Hurricane Wilma on October 24, 2005; and
WHEREAS, as signaled by Tropical Storm Alberto, weather forecasters predict another hurricane season with unusual storm activity; and
WHEREAS, on June 12, 2006, Executive Order 06-131 was issued extending and incorporating Executive Order 05-234, expediting repair of roofs; and
WHEREAS, Executive Order 06-131 will expire on August 12, 2006;
NOW, THEREFORE, I, JEB BUSH, as Governor of Florida, by virtue of the authority vested in me by Article IV, Section 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. Because of the foregoing conditions, I, hereby, find that the continuation of the activities needed to recover from the series of disasters beginning with Tropical Storm Arlene in 2005, and extending into this hurricane season, is of critical importance to the State of Florida. I further find that the interruption of these activities would aggravate the devastation caused by the hurricanes and would, therefore, significantly threaten the State’s recovery and relief effort.
Section 2. I hereby incorporate and extend Executive Order 06-131 only to the extent that it extends and incorporates Executive Order 05-234, so that the expiration date will coincide with the expiration of this Executive Order.
Section 3. This Executive Order shall expire sixty (60) days from the date hereof unless extended.
