Committees Wrap Up, PIP/No-fault Repeal Stalls
Thursday, 20 February 2020

Friday, February 21, 2020, Tallahassee – With only three weeks remaining in this year’s annual session, a majority of committees in both the House and Senate held their final meetings this week. More time will now be devoted to sessions on the floor of each chamber, debating and voting on those issues that have successfully completed their trek through the committee process. This week also saw bills seeking to repeal PIP/No-fault failing to be scheduled for additional committee hearings.

PIP/No-fault Repeal Advances as Budget Work Begins
Friday, 14 February 2020
Friday, February 14, 2020, Tallahassee – Lawmakers reached the halfway point of their 60-day annual legislative session this Wednesday, during a week otherwise dominated by debate and final passage of each chamber’s state budget spending proposals. Legislators are now in a posture to begin Senate-House negotiations to hammer out the differences between their two plans. About $1.4-billion currently separates the two proposals – now $91.4-billion in the House compared to a Senate bottom line of $92.8-billion. Significantly different spending priorities between the two plans will have to be worked through in the four remaining weeks to achieve an on-time adjournment on March 13th. Conferees will likely be appointed by both the House Speaker and the Senate President as soon as next week, to begin their negotiations.

Subcommittees Wrap Up as PIP/No-Fault Repeal Surfaces
Friday, 07 February 2020
Friday, February 7, 2020, Tallahassee – State lawmakers spent much of their week in the capitol this week finishing up their subcommittee work while beginning the earliest stages of their budget discussions. It is a week traditionally filled with angst – not to mention in at least some cases a measured amount of panic – as lawmakers realize that, if their individual bills have not been afforded at least a subcommittee meeting to date, their ideas are likely doomed for this session.
