Deceptive Subject Line Emails Illegal in FL

On Tuesday, May 25, 2004, Florida Governor Jeb Bush signed bill (SB 2574) giving the attorney general authority to bring civil action against the sender of an email with a deceptive subject line (e.g. the email subject says account overdue, but is actually a sexually explicit ad), or anyone helping the sender, and impose $500 fines for each occurrence.
