September 2023 Legislative Update

Happy September! I hope everyone made it safely through Hurricane Idalia with minimal property damage. Thankfully Tallahassee was spared the brunt of this fast-moving hurricane.

The Legislative Session starts this year January 9, 2024.  Committee meetings commence the week of September 18th during which Representative Danny Perez will be officially elected Speaker Designee. The Senate will not be meeting that week as the removal of asbestos construction will still be ongoing. They have scheduled to start meeting in October.

Legislation is starting to be filed for the upcoming session. Most recently, HB 11 was filed by Representative “Dr.” Joel Rudman, family practice doctor, which is of interest. HB 11 proposes to ban noncompete contracts for medical doctors and osteopathic doctors. More legislation is being filed as we gear up for the legislative session.

Campaign season is well underway and members are very busy fundraising.

It will be a very busy fall!
