Florida Ports 2018 Legislative Session Report

The Legislature extended until Sunday afternoon to finish the 2018 Budget and Tax Package. This year saw another historic low of bills passing both chambers of the Florida Legislature. Out of the 3,250 filed by members or committees, only 200 bills were passed.

We are pleased to report that the Florida Legislature has again fully funded our seaport budget items. This two-year term of the Florida Legislature has not included many substantive transportation-related issues, but the Legislature has fully funded our seaport budget items during this timeframe.
