2014 Florida Post-Session Report Released

Carlton Fields’ Government Law and Consulting Practice Group released its 2014 Florida Legislative Post-Session Report detailing significant bills that passed the 2014 Florida Legislature.

2014 Florida Legislative Post-Session ReportThe 2014 Legislature came into session in early March and adjourned in early May. Florida lawmakers passed more than 260 bills, 26 of them applied only to local areas. One proposed amendment to the Florida Constitution was also passed.

The Post-Session Report is categorized by subject. It does not summarize every piece of legislation passed, nor is it meant to be an exhaustive analysis of the bills that are included. Rather, the goal is to provide a general overview of legislative actions that are likely to impact lawyers, government consultants, and their clients.

This report was prepared immediately following the adjournment of the 2014 Legislative Session during the gubernatorial review period that generally spans about 60 days. All bills are subject to the Governor’s veto authority. The reader is therefore encouraged to check the ultimate status of any bill by contacting our Tallahassee Office or visiting the Legislature’s website. However, if you see a citation in the Report to Laws of Florida, that means the Governor did not veto the bill. Final bill action can also be found at

We hope you find this report informative and useful.
