Each week during Florida’s interim committee weeks and the annual legislative session, FJA provides our members with an overview of the most up-to-date important legislative action and activities in Tallahassee.
However, the legislative process is very fluid, and things can change at a moment’s notice as new bills are filed, meetings are noticed late, amendments are created and noticed late. Your FJA legislative team works to track these activities and alert our legislative committee chairs and committees as things happen in real time. If information changes after our weekly email update, we notify the appropriate committee and practice groups and provide updates on this page.
Special Session: This week the Florida Legislature convened a brief three-day special session to address vaccine mandates by Florida political subdivisions and private businesses. Lawmakers made quick work of passing several bills that were approved largely along partisan lines, and sent them to Gov. Ron DeSantis on Wednesday.
Interim Committee Week 4: The special session has been called to address vaccination mandates by Florida political subdivisions and private businesses. The Governor made this call last Friday and asked lawmakers to convene the special session the week of November 15. It will be week five out of six in preparation for the nine-week 2022 legislative session.
Interim Committee Week 3: The top point of interest coming out of the third legislative committee week, last week, was the Governor’s announcement that he is calling for the Legislature to convene a special session to address vaccination mandates by Florida political subdivisions and private businesses.
Interim Committee Week 2: Ready or not the 2022 Legislative Session is right around the corner and in preparation for the annual convening of the Florida Legislature, lawmakers have returned to Tallahassee for Interim Committee weeks. Keeping FJA members informed, we will provide weekly recaps on Fridays afternoons during committee weeks and legislative session.
