The Florida State Legislature meets in the spring of each year.  Sessions normally last 60 days. 


Before the session begins, legislators meet in committees to discuss legislation they want to pursue in the upcoming session.  Since the Republicans are in the majority in Tallahassee, they play a large role in committee assignments and the legislation that is discussed in committee and gets to the floor.

It is important that we Democrats contact our legislators about legislation we oppose or support.  Doing so prior to the session actually starting is key.  They need our input.  See "Do Your Research" on how to research upcoming bills.

The 2021 schedule is as follows:

Feb 8 - 12:  Committee Meetings

Feb 15 - 19:  Committee Meetings

March 2:  Session Convenes

April 30:  Session Concludes
