Gentry branching out



For 23 years Richard Gentry has been the chief lobbyist for Florida's homebuilders. Now he's going out on his own to try his hand as a ""hired gun'' for others.

""I decided if I was ever going to do it, I should do it now,'' said Gentry, 55.
He'll still be hanging around the Capitol but he hopes never to hear the words ""impact fee'' again.
