Back to school: House’s ‘Legislator University’ starts next week

The Florida House won’t be meeting in committees next week, but it will be holding “Legislator University,” an orientation for new members and refresher for returning ones.

House spokesman Fred Piccolo released the schedule, OK’d by new Speaker Jose Oliva, late Wednesday.

Things kick off Tuesday, with a 9 a.m. mandatory “Ethics in the Legislature” session.

That’s followed by some “electives”: “Introduction to State Budget,” “Introduction to House Rules,” or “Introduction to Bill Drafting.”

Next up: “Exploring Florida’s Medicaid Program,” and “An Overview of Pre K-12 Governance and Performance.”

Also important: “Understand Your Office Accounts.”

The formalized week-long training was begun in 2016 by immediate past Speaker Richard Corcoran.

The full schedule is below.
