Each year, Florida lawmakers convene in Tallahassee to consider bills that will impact Floridians and the natural environment. The 60-day session, which begins March 7, offers lawmakers the chance to chart an impactful course for issues including water quality, conservation, and environmental justice. But it also leaves the door open for bad bills and special-interest influence. Unfortunately, we tend to see more of the latter in Tallahassee.

Friends of the Everglades is committed to tracking it all. To make it easy for our supporters to follow along, we are proud to debut a new section of our website dedicated to just that. 

Our new portal, Following the Florida Legislature, is your one-stop shop for regularly updated information related to bills, key players and opportunities to take action. We invite you to take a look today and bookmark this page for easy reference in the days ahead. 

While you’re at it, check out Friends of the Everglades’ 2023 State Legislative Priorities, outlining key environmental challenges and opportunities Florida leaders face in the coming session. These priorities will guide our efforts to hold lawmakers accountable and keep you informed about Tallahassee policy that impacts our environment.
