Accessibility of Government Records (Monitor) – Failed 

SB 1516 (Pizzo) and HB 1527 (Joseph) require governmental agencies to provide members of the Legislature and the Florida cabinet any requested documents within seven days after receiving the request. The governmental entity may not redact the records and must waive all fees associated with the request. The legislative member or the cabinet member requesting the records is responsible for keeping the records confidential and may only share the records with another member of the Legislature. The requestee must submit a form to the agency releasing the records acknowledging this obligation. (Taggart)
