Our local and state governments may not get the same level of press as national politics, but the legislation they work on impacts us every day. Read on for information about tools to help you keep track of important legislation, from City Hall to Tallahassee.
State Legislative Tracker
The Florida state legislative session started on Tuesday and is shaping up to be quite busy. Javi Estevez, our legislative liaison for the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, has put together a list of state bills that affects us here in Miami-Dade.
The tracker will be updated frequently, so check back often. Note that you can also click over to the second tab of the tracker to see environmental bills.
To keep track of Miami-Dade County legislation, sign up to receive agendas from the Board of County Commissioners. You can select specific agendas, including those for housing, infrastructure, transportation, and health care.
City of Miami Beach Resident Connect
Last but not least, our city government has a great tool to keep track of items that will come before the Miami Beach City Commission. Miami Beach Resident Connect is an electronic notification system that lets you sign up to receive alerts when topics of interest come up on a public meeting agenda.
