The 2022 Regular Session is over! Thank you for all of your hard work and advocacy during session. FEA’s End of Session Report is a comprehensive recap of all that happened in the legislature this year related to education.
Legislators will be coming back for at least one special session during the week of April 18. That session will focus exclusively on redrawing Congressional maps that Gov. DeSantis vetoed.
There has been some talk of a second special session to work on issues related to property insurance but nothing is yet finalized. We will keep you informed if and when details for a second special session are finalized.
The Week Ahead in the Legislature
Agenda Watch: In order for session to end on time, the budget will need to be finalized before the end of the night on Tuesday, March 8. We’ll be watching to see how the education budget turns out.
Since Gov. DeSantis vetoed the Congressional maps that were sent to him from the Legislature, a special session will be convened on April 19 for the purpose of creating a new map. The session will end no later than 11:59 p.m. on April 22.
The session will be limited exclusively the Congressional maps. There will not be any education policy during this special session.
All meetings are streamed live and on The Florida Channel where they are also available for on-demand viewing within 24 hours of the conclusion of the meeting.
