Campaign Finance 1327

Under certain conditions candidates running for office are granted tax dollars to run their campaigns, a dubious “public good” for tax payers. These package of bills would limit or repeal public campaign financing. While HB 1325 passed through the House and was sent over to the Senate, it did not receive a vote.

Regulatory Reform 729

Red tape and regulations can prove to be one of the costliest component of creating or running a business. As originally crafted, this legislation would have created the Red Tape Reduction Advisory Council within the Executive Office of the Governor to do away with overly burdensome regulations. While the House version managed to pass through its first committee, both bills failed to reach the chamber floor.

Dues and Uniform Assessments 1

Forcible association with an organization should not be a requirement to hold a job in a certain industry. While as a right to work state, Florida has many protections for employees who don’t wish to belong to a certain group or union to hold a job there are still further protections that could further enhance those safeguards. HB 1 would require a public employee who desires to join an employee organization sign a membership authorization form, indicating affirmative consent and providing as authorization before any dues can be docked from a paycheck. While HB 1 advanced through the House, it’s counterpart did not pass the Senate.
