The 2022 Legislative Session Begins January 2022. You currently have the opportunity to meet with your local elected officials before they head to Tallahassee. Delegation meetings are happening NOW!
What is a Legislative Delegation Meeting?
The primary focus of legislative delegation is dedicated to organizing and coordinating the joint activities of each County's delegates (elected officals) to the State Legislature in Tallahassee as well as providing assistance and information to members of the Delegation and their staff, the offices of the County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, and obtaining answers to our residents' legislative inquiries.
All meetings of the Delegation are open to the public and widely advertised to the general public, media and local governments in order to provide sufficient notice of the consideration of local bills by the Delegation.
There are TWO types: STATE and FEDERAL delegation meetings: STATE OR FEDERAL? -- Determine the appropriate jurisdiction for your matter of concern. For issues of statewide or regional significance, contact your State Legislators. For matters of national or international significance, contact your Federal Legislators.
*Deadline to file to speak is 7 DAYS prior to scheduled meeting. FOR EVERY MEETING. Must complete speaker request form to speak at the meeting.
County/ District Delegation Office: Legislative Delegation Office
The County Legislative Delegation Office is a nonpartisan office that serves all members of the Florida Senate and House of Representatives who represent the County in Tallahassee.
The delegation office is responsible for: scheduling and coordinating all delegation meetings in the County and Tallahassee; developing the delegation's legislative program which includes all local bills, community appropriation requests and county and municipal legislative priorities; providing legislative assistance and research to the delegation during the legislative session; and serving as a liaison between the delegation and local governments and community organizations.
At the end of each legislative session, a comprehensive report is published by the delegation for all county, municipal and federal offices, as well as other interested parties, which reviews all local bills and appropriations affecting the County, and general bills passed by the County Delegation members.
