A proposed rule on collecting and distributing IOTA funds is being redrafted to specify only one entity should administer those monies and that agency should be The Florida Bar Foundation.

Task force member and Third District Court of Appeal Judge Ed Scales discussed compromise language he is preparing at the task force’s August 13 meeting. Scales presided at the meeting in the absence of Chair and former Bar President Mayanne Downs.

“I would like to see a 7-0 [unanimous] vote on our task force,” Scales said as he introduced his proposals. “It may not be possible, it may be pie in the sky idealism, but I would like to see that.”
