Chapter 2023-231, Laws of Florida, created Section 380.0937, Florida Statute (F.S.), which modifies the Sea Level Impact Projection (SLIP) study requirements for state-financed construction projects within areas at risk due to sea level rise, expanding both the geographic area and types of structures for which the requirement applies.

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is directed to develop by rule a standard by which a state-financed constructor must conduct a SLIP study and to define a "significant flood damage" threshold for potentially at-risk structures or infrastructure for which replacement cost is not an appropriate metric. In accordance with this directive, the Resilient Florida Program is developing proposed amendments to Chapter 62S-7, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), Public Financing of Coastal Construction "SLIP Study Rule." The rule updates will:

Modify definitions, requirements of state-financed constructors, standards for SLIP studies, and implementation of SLIP study findings; and
Only apply to construction not commenced as of July 1, 2024.

Projects initiated prior to July 1, 2024, remain subject to the current SLIP study requirements and standards.
