A Florida Senate committee has approved a bill that will provide Florida residents with a sales-tax exemption for diapers, incontinence undergarments, incontinence pads, and incontinence liners.

The bill was co-sponsored by South Florida State Senator Lauren Book (D-Plantation) and Senator Travis Hutson (R-St. Augustine).
