Last Thursday, Florida Speaker of the House Dean Cannon created the Select Committee on Government Reorganization, tasking the committee with two primary activities: first, review government programs that purport to promote or regulate the private sector and second, review government programs involved with health and human services delivery systems. The Speaker advised the committee to consider changes to the Florida Constitution, in addition to statutory changes, in order to focus the work of government and eliminate “extraneous tasks.” Speaker Pro Tempore John Legg will chair the committee, while Rep. Gary Aubochon will serve as the vice chair. The committee's proposal will ultimately be referred solely to the Appropriations Committee, and then moved to the floor for full consideration by the House.
