287.0931 Minority business enterprises; participation in bond underwriting.
(1) Any state or local government agency, or political subdivision thereof, issuing bonds or other tax-exempt obligations through one or more underwriters is encouraged to offer not less than 20 percent participation to minority firms.
(2) To meet such participation requirement, the minority firm must have full-time employees located in this state, must have a permanent place of business located in this state, and must be a firm which is at least 51-percent-owned by minority persons as defined in s. 288.703. However, for the purpose of bond underwriting only, the requirement that the minority person be a permanent resident of this state does not apply.
