Since my last Ebrief, we have had our first special session and the new congressional maps were passed and sent to the Governor and have been signed into law.
Also, included in the call, was an act relating to special districts which dissolved the Reedy Creek special district along with four other special districts. The bill sunsets the districts in a year which will allow the legislature to pass legislation modifying how these districts are set up, if need be.
The Governor has called another special session for May 23-27th and plans to address property insurance. There are rumors that he will also take up consumer data privacy legislation.
There may be a third special session to address: open carry of firearms and how union dues are collected.
Needless to say, this is making it difficult for members to fundraise as they are prohibited to raise campaign funds during session.
Campaign season is well underway and lots of our friends are fundraising.
Please contact me if you have any questions on your local candidates.
Wishing everyone well.
