Request for Temporary Injunction Against Emergency Rule

Yesterday evening, we filed a petition with the First District Court of Appeal (DCA) to ask for a temporary injunction against the Governor’s Emergency Rule, 58AER17-1. This action is coordinated with our filing at the Division of Administrative Hearings to challenge the rule itself. Download a copy of the petition here. Download a copy of the petition here.
If granted, this petition would stop the current implementation of the rule, providing relief from the looming deadline of Nov. 15to have generators and fuel tanks installed. Our greatest concern is that this deadline will either force rushed — and potentially unsafe — solutions or will put an unimaginable financial burden on communities as they work toward compliance while being fined $1,000 per day past Nov. 15.
The safety of the residents and staff at our member communities remains our top priority, and we will continue advocating on behalf our members throughout this process.
