On March 5th, 2009, Florida introduced a new law concerning nonimmigrant aliens in the U.S. Labeled SB 1986, the new law obliges nonimmigrant aliens applying for an initial, renewal, or modification of ownership license for a home health agency, a home medical equipment provider, or a health care treatment center to acquire a surety bond. The surety bond required must be at least $500,000 to guarantee fulfillment of all the legal requirements in order to operate. SB 1986 was enacted three months after it was introduced.
