Friday, 27 January 2017
Tallahassee – State lawmakers, returned to Tallahassee last week for another round of committee meetings in preparation for their annual 60-day lawmaking session slated to begin on March 7. Their pace has started to pick up now that members in both houses have received their committee assignments.

Among the variety of health care issues discussed, at least two continued to be closely monitored this week by the FCA Lobby Team: No-fault auto insurance and workers’ compensation. Here’s a closer look at committee work in both the Florida House and Senate this week on these two key issues.

Itís a wrap: State lawmakers end session on time, with a budget
Friday, 18 March 2016
Friday, March 17, 2016, Tallahassee – In dramatic contrast to their meltdown near the end of last year’s annual lawmaking session, smiling House and Senate leaders returned to a more cordial finale concluding their 2016 session on time last Friday evening. Shortly after the traditional “handkerchief drop” signaling their final adjournment sine die (Latin for “without day”), House and Senate leaders went one friendlier step further, meeting together outside their chamber doors on the Capitol’s fourth floor. Much praise and back-slapping were the order of the day and even Gov. Rick Scott made a rare visit upstairs to praise their efforts.
