Advocacy & Legislation

Legislative Session Report

Legislative Session Reports
The FPA works with the advocacy team of Adams St. Advocates to advance our legislative agenda and the proactive policies presented by the Governmental Affairs Council. At the conclusion of each Florida legislative session we produce a report detailing and clarifying the intricacies of each of the bills on our legislative agenda (supported, opposed, and monitoring) and how the profession will be impacted. The Legislative Session Report is a summary of the accomplishments of not only the FPA, but all members and providers in the State that have dedicated their time, resources, and efforts to keep the profession of pharmacy moving forward.

Bill Tracker

Our Governmental Affair Committee (GAC) and Association Lobbying team Adams St. Advocates are continuously monitoring and discussing the newly introduced legislation, and they are keeping an ear to the ground for potential bills that may impact the profession of pharmacy or the practice of healthcare in the State.
