When the dust cleared Saturday afternoon in the Florida Legislature, lawmakers had passed 195 bills. Most now await the signature of Gov. Ron DeSantis.
In all, slightly fewer bills were passed than the prior year, when the body passed just 200 (excluding one-chamber resolutions), the low point in a 20-year trend of fewer and fewer bills. Of 1,861 bills filed (excluding local appropriations projects), lawmakers passed about 10 percent.
What follows is a list of some of the 2019 legislative session’s most notable bills.
