Kathleen Passidomo Announces Florida Senate Committee Leadership, Assignments

Florida Senate President Kathleen Passidomo, R-Naples, announced the committee assignments as the chamber gets ready for its regular session next year.

“Over the last few days, I enjoyed the opportunity to speak with each of you regarding committee assignments. As I mentioned in our personal conversations, within the constraints of a block schedule, I gave great deference to your stated areas of interest. I appreciate your positive feedback and the willingness of senators to both take on new challenges and to continue service in areas where you have a wealth of experience,” Passidomo announced in a memo released on Monday.

“As many senators are aware, I have decided to create both a Committee on Pre-K-12 Education and a Committee on Postsecondary Education. Serving as Chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on Pre-K-12 Education, I saw the benefit of bifurcating the responsibilities for Pre-K-12 and Postsecondary. In my view, the merits of this approach will be even more impactful by bifurcating the policy committee, rather than the appropriations committee. As we saw in our travels around the state this summer, the pandemic highlighted issues related to education like never before. From increasing school choice options to setting standards for curriculum, parents are demanding more involvement in elementary and high school education. Meanwhile, higher education institutions are adapting to the demands of a post-pandemic workforce. I see tremendous room for innovation in this area of public policy and believe the Senate will benefit greatly from separate policy committees for Pre-K-12 and Postsecondary Education,” she continued.

“As discussed previously, I am also creating a Select Committee on Resiliency. The wide-ranging impacts of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole clearly fall under the jurisdiction of a number of standing committees. While we will address some of these issues during the upcoming special session, my expectation is the select committee will continue to review recovery efforts and overall resiliency planning for our state,” Passidomo added.
