Background Discussion
The 2013 Legislative Session ended May 3, marking the end of a 60-day period when state lawmakers tackled elections and ethics reform and passed the biggest budget in state history which includes funding for several Manatee County projects. Among these was a $1 million allocation for the Manatee County Southwest Water Reclamation Facility. 

Manatee County's contracted state lobbyist Cari Roth will brief the Board on these and several other major issues that passed during another busy legislative session.
