Session Week 5: Local Government Updates & FICPA Policies


As we reach the halfway point of the Florida Legislature’s 2018 Session, Florida CPAs will want to take note of newly introduced legislation that would affect local government reporting requirements, as well as a proposal for additional financial literacy education standards.

NEW: FICPA’s 2018 Legislative & Regulatory Policies

As part of the FICPA’s service to its members, the Committee on State Legislative Policy develops its Legislative and Regulatory Policies every year. These policies are developed and reviewed as part of a collaborative effort with FICPA subject matter experts to achieve favorable changes and advance our profession. Their comments regarding existing policies and issues that need to be addressed are used to assist the State Legislative Policy Committee in establishing priorities for the current fiscal year.

The 2018 Legislative & Regulatory Policies are available here.

Stay tuned as our Government Affairs team brings you additional updates throughout the rest of the 2018 Legislative Session.

This November, voters will head to the ballot box to take part in the 2018 midterm elections – and the stakes couldn’t be higher. With the entire Cabinet, half of the State Senate, and the entire House of Representatives on this year’s ballot, the state’s fiscal and regulatory landscape could change dramatically by this time next year.

It’s more important than ever that we hear from you now.
