Florida Legislature Adjourns Sine Die
The Florida Legislature adjourned sine die on May 4.
The 61-day legislative session ran a day longer than expected as lawmakers passed a $91.1 billion state budget over the weekend.
During the session, lawmakers failed to pass an ethics reform bill revising post-service lobbying restrictions and executive branch lobbyist registration.
The Legislature passed House Bills 7021 and 7023 requiring the electronic filing of financial disclosures.
If signed by the governor, the electronic filing requirement is effective January 1, 2022.
