RWCDF Legislative  Committee

During the 2024 Florida Legislative Session, the Legislative Committee is focused on supporting great policy to keep Florida free! Led by President Esther Byrd, we have chosen 6 bills to prioritize, which represent foundational policy that all Republicans support. Committee meetings are held weekly by Zoom on Fridays at 1-2pm during the Legislative Session and include a brief update on bills, a long form interview with a Legislator and an opportunity for Q &A. Florida has a 60-day Session and this year its January 9th through March 8th. All Republicans are welcome to join us. Simply register at the Upcoming Events section.  The blog below will include weekly updates.

    I look forward to seeing you all on our weekly Legislative Zoom tomorrow at 1:00pm. Last week we spent time with Senator Clay Yarborough, who served 6 years in the House before being elected to Senate District 4. This week, we will be visiting with State Rep Dean Black, who was just elected in 2022 so he's serving in his second Session. You can learn more about Rep. Black and his district at the link below.

    This week we saw some good movement on our priority bills. Two of them, HB 1 and HB 3 were PASSED by the House and sent to the Senate in messages. They passed 106-13 and 119-0 respectively so there is clear bipartisan support for protecting our children. I'm including links to the House Session and a Fox News article. What will happen next is that the Senate will take up the companion bills, replace them with the House versions and their Chamber will go through the readings, questions, debate and vote.

    House Bill 75 has passed both of its committees and has been referred to the Second Reading Calendar. The Senate companion, SB 184 has passed the assigned three committees and referred to the Second Reading Calendar. Both chambers are tentatively scheduled to be in Session on Thursday and Friday so I would expect that these will be heard and passed next week.

    Links are below for the tentative calendars for Week 4 (Jan 29- Feb 2) for the House and Senate. At this point in Session, there is a 48-hour notice requirement so understand that these schedules are subject to change up until that deadline for each calendar day.
