TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Operators of assisted living facilities would face higher fines and increased licensing procedures for handling mentally impaired residents under a bill passed by the Florida Senate.

The measure passed unanimously Tuesday.

It also requires the creation of a website where people can post public comments about individual facilities. The bill still faces a House vote.

Assisted living facilities in Florida provide intermediate care with limited supervision of residents.
