       By Senator Baxley
       12-01238-19                                           20191208__
    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to aircraft liens; amending ss. 329.41
    3         and 329.51, F.S.; specifying that a lienor is not
    4         required to possess an aircraft to perfect certain
    5         liens; providing an effective date.
    7  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
    9         Section 1. Section 329.41, Florida Statutes, is amended to
   10  read:
   11         329.41 Lien for fuel furnished to aircraft.—A person who
   12  has furnished fuel to an aircraft has a lien upon the aircraft
   13  for any unpaid fuel charges and possession of the aircraft is
   14  not required in order to perfect such lien. The lien is
   15  enforceable in the same manner as provided in s. 329.51.
   16         Section 2. Section 329.51, Florida Statutes, is amended to
   17  read:
   18         329.51 Liens for labor, services, fuel, or material
   19  expended upon aircraft; notice.—Any lien claimed on an aircraft
   20  under s. 329.41 or s. 713.58 is enforceable when the lienor
   21  records a verified lien notice with the clerk of the circuit
   22  court in the county where the aircraft was located at the time
   23  the labor, services, fuel, or material was last furnished. The
   24  lienor is not required to possess the aircraft to perfect such
   25  lien. The lienor must record such lien notice within 90 days
   26  after the time the labor, services, fuel, or material was last
   27  furnished. The notice must state the name of the lienor; the
   28  name of the owner; a description of the aircraft upon which the
   29  lienor has expended labor, services, fuel, or material; the
   30  amount for which the lien is claimed; and the date the
   31  expenditure was completed. This section does not affect the
   32  priority of competing interests in any aircraft or the lienor’s
   33  obligation to record the lien under s. 329.01.
   34         Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 2019.
