Since 2019 is an odd-numbered year, Florida’s legislative session convenes this month vs in even-numbered years when it convenes in January. You will be able to watch the happenings by selecting “Live Stream” at www.TheFloridaChannel.org and reviewing the legislative committee work and when the House and Senate meet on their respective floors.
Tallahassee is a beautiful place in the Spring with flowers everywhere and temperatures in the 70’s most days. Our team will spend its days in the Capitol meeting with legislators and staff, monitoring bills we either support or oppose on behalf of our clients, and watching public policymakers grapple with tough decisions about Florida’s water quality, education system, public safety, transportation and infrastructure, and of course, Florida’s $70+ billion insurance and financial services industry.
It is a privilege to serve in this process, adding value where we can and representing many of our readers’ interest. We draw strength from each of you who share marvelous ideas and take the time to send written input on various legislative proposals…I have never had to ask twice! As I said to one of you this past week as I sought input on what appears to be the broken Civil Remedy/lawsuit process, “you live this” every day.
Thanks for taking the time to read this week’s edition of the LMA Newsletter and we will be publishing weekly for the next 8 weeks for your reading pleasure before we return to our twice a month May through December schedule.
