Capitol Report for Week Ending March 11, 2016

Week nine of the 2016 Florida legislative session will soon be over and there was action on issues that are priorities for Common Cause Florida. One of our top priorities is now on the Governor’s desk awaiting his signature. Another priority failed to make it out of its last committee stop and is dead for the 2016 session. After passing an $82 billion budget, the legislature is expected to adjourn on Friday afternoon.

Capitol Report for Week Ending February 26, 2016

Week seven of the 2016 Florida legislative session is over and there was action on issues that are priorities for Common Cause Florida. Most of the legislation we support is well positioned to pass in the final two weeks of the session. All of the legislation we once considered problematic has been neutralized to the point that Common Cause Florida is no longer opposing it.

Capitol Report for Week Ending December 4, 2015

The Florida legislature continues to prepare for the 2016 legislative session holding a final week of committee meetings. Also this week, the Florida Supreme Court upheld Circuit Judge Terry Lewis’s decision in favor of a congressional district map submitted by Common Cause Florida and the League of Women Voters of Florida. The Supreme Court’s decision means the Common Cause/League of Women Voter’s map is now the new congressional district map for Florida, barring any successful future legal challenges.
