A select group of lawmakers will be focused on specific, hurricane-related policy recommendations over the next two weeks.
Each member of the House Select Committee on Hurricane Response and Preparedness on Friday was assigned a specific area of focus. Chair Jeanette Nuñez, a Miami Republican, grouped the issues into categories following the five educational meetings held by the committee.
“To ensure that we cover all the issue areas, I am asking that you work with staff over the next two weeks to develop possible recommendations for the specific issue categories indicated below,” Nuñez wrote in an email to committee members.
Here are the assignments:
Evacuation: Reps. Robert Asencio, Michael Grant, and Holly Raschein.
Energy: Reps. Tracie Davis, Dane Eagle, and Jay Trumbull
Shelters and Vulnerable Populations: Reps. Danny Burgess, Cord Byrd, and Sean Shaw
