Legislative Update

The Florida House is scheduled to finish the legislative session this Friday, May 3rd but will be extending until Saturday, May 4th in order to complete the budget.

HB 23, the Telehealth bill, was passed to the Governor on Wednesday the 29th as budget negotiations were continuing. Please click here to see the bill as passed.

HB 7067, the fee bill, also passed. It sets the fee at $150 for out of state doctors to register and practice medicine in Florida. Please click here to see the bill as passed.

Many in the medical profession, including dentists and optometrists, are not happy with the bill as it passed.

I will be sending a more comprehensive update on the Session at a later date.

Please contact me at with any questions or concerns.

Alison Dudley, FRS Lobbyist
