Almost Done: Legislature Heads into Overtime
Monday, 16 March 2020
Monday, March 16, 2020, Tallahassee – State lawmakers, scheduled to end their 60-day legislative session on Friday, worked up until their midnight deadline before finally acknowledging they would need to extend to complete the one task they are mandated to complete each year: Passing a state budget for the next fiscal year. Budget work continued into the weekend as leaders in both the House and Senate worked behind the scenes to hammer out their differences. Their final conference report was “published” on Sunday, triggering a 72-hour “cooling off” period before a final vote can be taken. Current plans call for lawmakers to return to the capitol on Thursday afternoon to vote on their record $93.2-billion budget plan.

Extended Session? No-fault/PIP Repeal Dead?
Friday, 06 March 2020
Friday, March 6, 2020, Tallahassee – With just one week remaining in this year’s annual lawmaking session, questions continue to mount as legislative leaders suggest they may not be able to complete their work by their scheduled adjournment on March 13th. While budget negotiations between the House and Senate leaders are supposedly taking place behind-the-scenes, neither body has moved forward to appoint the usual assemblage of conferees to formally accomplish the goal of hammering out a state government spending plan in the sunshine. Passing a balanced budget is the only chore the legislature must accomplish before adjourning, the likelihood of which now appears improbable without the possible overtime extension suggested yesterday by both the Speaker and President.

No-fault/PIP Repeal Ready for House Floor
Friday, 28 February 2020
Friday, February 28, 2020, Tallahassee – With just two weeks remaining in the year’s regular legislative session the proposal aimed at repealing and replacing Florida’s decades-old No-fault/PIP auto insurance system was approved yesterday afternoon by the House Commerce Committee, the bill’s last committee of reference. That means the proposal (HB771) authored by Rep. Erin Grall (R-Vero Beach), is now available for consideration by the full Florida House. A similar proposal (SB 378) is currently stalled in the Senate.
