While the temperate started to drop outside, it was rising inside Florida’s Capitol. The final committee week before legislative session has historically been a busy one. The budget process is starting, major pieces of legislation are being teed up for a floor vote and some legislation dies. The final committee week of 2017 was no different with the Senate’s higher education priority passing its final committee and some major gun bills being shot down in Senate.

Below are issues related to our work for you and other hot topics addressed during the week.
