Legislative leaders announce 2018-19 committee week schedule

State lawmakers will head back to Tallahassee in early December for preliminary meetings for the 2019 Legislative Session.

Memos released Wednesday outlined the committee week schedule, starting with Organization Session the week of Thanksgiving, on Nov. 20.

Among other things, that’s when Senate President Joe Negron will pass the gavel to Senate President-designate Bill Galvano, as will House Speaker Richard Corcoran to House Speaker-designate Jose Oliva.

Next, legislative committees will meet the weeks of Dec. 11, Jan. 7 and 22, and Feb. 4, 11 and 18.

“This schedule provides ample time for committee work and allows time in December for family and holiday celebrations,” the Senate’s memo says.

The 2019 Legislative Session begins Tuesday, March 5, 2019. The annual 60-day session is scheduled to end on May 3.
