The 2014 Legislative Session is right around the corner with committee weeks beginning in January. FAC is preparing for another challenging session with the potential for tax cuts and unfunded mandates that effect local revenues. During Legislative Conference in November, FAC’s membership adopted the following as priorities for the 2014 Legislative Session:
Maintaining Revenues for Florida’s Communities
Enhancing Juvenile Justice
Protecting Florida’s Waters
Ending Homelessness in Florida
Many of you will be meeting with your delegations in the coming weeks. FAC has prepared materials to assist you in advocating for the counties shared legislative priorities. Included is a sample resolution for BOCCs looking to adopt the legislative priorities; the full 2014 Legislative Program and a one page handout on the priority issues for your use. You can find the materials on our website and if you have any questions please contact us at (850) 922-4300.
