Well, in a Thursday release surprising no one, here is his resignation from the Florida House. 

Statement by Florida House Representative Steve Precourt regarding Resigning from the Florida Legislature  

Tallahassee, Fla.—Florida House Representative Steve Precourt (R-Orlando) today released the following statement regarding resigning from the Florida Legislature.

“Today, I submitted my resignation as a member of the Florida House of Representatives to Speaker Will Weatherford. Serving in the Florida Legislature has been a great experience, and I am grateful to have worked alongside such esteemed men and women. Working to establish fiscally conservative policies, reinforcing limited government, protecting the unborn, and standing for religious freedom were some of my proudest moments. Representing the constituents of Central Florida in Tallahassee has truly been an honor and I look forward to continuing my service in another capacity.  As I work towards an agreement with the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority, I commit to maintaining their good reputation. I vow to work hard to uphold the highest standards when serving their customers, the public, the stakeholders and all the many constituents."
