CRC Review

 

CRC Update: What we know so far - NOVEMBER 2 at 10 AM

The Constitution Revision Commission is one of five ways Florida can amend the state constitution. It happens once every 20 years and is taking place now. The League is actively following the process and encouraging local government leaders to stay engaged throughout the process to ensure any recommendations made by the CRC uphold Home Rule. October 6 is the last day for members of the public to submit proposals. October 31 is the last day for CRC commissioners to file theirs. Join us on November 2 to learn what those proposals contain and actions needs to influence the committee process.

Legislative Action Days

 

SAVE THE DATE! Legislative Action Days will be JANUARY 30-31, 2018.

Every year during session, League members attend Legislative Action Days in Tallahassee to hear from legislators and League staff on what the legislative session holds for municipalities. Attendees will meet with their legislators one on one to let them know what issues are important to the League and Florida cities. 

Legislative Action Days is a valuable opportunity for members to get to know their legislators and to view the legislature at work first hand.
