It’s a wrap! The 2018 Florida Legislative Session, extended for three days, ended Sunday March 11, 2018 at 4:16 PM when the Legislature passed an $88.7 billion state budget.

Together we have witnessed what is sure to be a session long remembered in Florida history for the fastest, most sweeping gun safety legislation developed, passed, and signed by the Governor in the past 20 years — as a response to the February 14, 2018 assault weapon tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
