Florida Legislative Session

There are a number of bills pending before the Florida Legislature that could undermine municipal home rule.   It is important for citizens to be informed on these issues.  Village Council and Administration urge North Palm Beach residents to review the legislation being considered in this session.  View the Florida Legislature  page under the Residents tab to find links to the Florida League of Cities legislative news alerts, which reference bills that specifically impact municipalities and home rule.  Each alert published by the Florida League of Cities contains a link to the actual text of the proposed legislation.  The session calendar and status and text of all the bills being considered can be accessed through links to the FL Senate and House pages.  For your convenience, there are links to contact Senator Bobby Powell, District 30, and Representative Rick Roth, District 85, the elected officials representing NPB, as well as links to the Palm Beach County Legislative Delegation members.

Please note that while the League of Cities advocates on behalf of municipalities throughout the state, the League's views on each piece of pending legislation do not, in every respect, represent the views of the Village or its elected and appointed officials.
