Legislative Committees

FJA Legislative Committees

The Florida Justice Association’s legislative committees are very active. FJA proposes proactive legislation that benefit our members and their clients, and attempt to amend or defeat unfavorable legislation.

To accomplish this, we have several legislative committees whose mission it is to help set FJA’s proactive legislative agenda, draft any proactive legislation that the FJA would like to pursue, assist in drafting position papers on issues and to act as an advisory group during the session on issues within the expertise of its members. Committees are created whenever a specific need arises, or, as with medical malpractice and insurance, need continual oversight.
