Florida House Rules Chairman Rob Schenck has released the Rules for the Florida House for 2012-14.

Most of the Rules remain unchanged, but there are a few changes:

  • Movement of the default session start time from 9 a.m. to 8 a.m.
  • Removal of the revolving bill slot incentive for repealer bills.  Repealer bills remain an exemption to a member’s bill limit.
  • Conforming of conference procedures to our House practice of requiring signatures on reports.
  • Requirement that complaints contain the complainant’s name and legal address.
  • Reflection of the statutory obligation regarding voting abstention and disclosure.
  • Reflection of the Speaker-designate’s final decision to have  a single Education Appropriations subcommittee.
