Advocacy in Full Swing During 2018 Session

As I write this column, the Florida Legislature is meeting in Tallahassee discussing everything from hurricane relief for farmers to social media and, of course, agreeing on a state budget. There are also dozens of bills being considered, including two that are of specific interest to the Florida Deputy Sheriffs Association and our members. As I mentioned in this space last year, FDSA would be more active in 2018 regarding advocacy for our members, especially in the areas that relate to their safety and the protection of their families. As anticipated, there are three items on which we are concentrating our efforts – two pieces of legislation and a proposition that is being heard by the Constitution Revision Commission.
