2015 Florida Legislative Update
The Florida Legislature concluded its 2015 Regular Session on May 1, 2015. However, for all practical purposes, the session ended on April 28, when the House unexpectedly adjourned three days early after it became clear the two chambers could not agree on a budget. The Legislature returned a month later for a special session that began on June 1 and ended on June 19, when the Legislature passed a budget and related implementing bills. The following is a summary of what happened on some of the key measures relating to environmental and land use law.
