Rep Pigman

Letter from State Representative Pigman, District 55

dated May 29, 2015

Friends,

The Florida Legislature will convene Special Session “A” beginning Monday, June 1st.
This Special Session is necessary to complete our work to form and pass a balanced budget.
In addition to the budget a number of health care policy bills will be considered. These bills are aimed at reducing unnecessary regulation and decreasing costs. I am sponsoring one of the bills, HB 27A, Drug Prescription by Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. This bill would allow ARNPs and PAs to prescribe controlled substances.
This Special Session will move rather quickly and I encourage you to utilize the Florida House’s website and mobile app to assist you in tracking legislation.
You can read the full text of the Proclamation calling the Legislature into Special Session here.
Please let me know if you have further questions.

Sincerely,

Cary Pigman State Representative, District 55

Thank you Representative Pigman!

Representative Cary Pigman’ Serving Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee, and Part of St. Lucie County

Friends, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your State Representative. It is an honor to work each and every day on behalf of the people of District 55. As you are probably aware, we recently concluded another legislative session in Tallahassee. In my view, this was a very successful session in which we were able to accomplish much on behalf of all Floridians. Florida has made an amazing comeback and the work we did this session will continue to move our state in the right direction.   One of the most important things we do each year is pass a budget. This year, we have once again produced a budget that is balanced and fiscally responsible. As I see it, the budget prioritizes our state’s critical needs while leaving $3.1 billion in reserves to prepare Florida for the future. This budget is a big win for Florida’s children, as it provides the most K-12 state funding in history. The budget also continues to strengthen Florida’s safety net by increasing funding to serve our most vulnerable populations, such as Floridians with severe disabilities and children in our juvenile welfare system. To put money back into the pockets of Floridians, the budget provides over $500 million in tax and fee cuts – the largest in over a decade.   Locally, the budget includes money for several stormwater and water quality projects throughout Highlands, Glades, and Okeechobee Counties, $7.8 million for the continued construction of the new Moore Haven Middle-High School, $3.5 million for the Glades County Gateway Logistics and Manufacturing Training Center, $750k for nutrient reduction and water retention projects on dairies at the basin, sub-basin, and farm levels in the Lake Okeechobee watershed, $520k for the implementation of the Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) program in the Highlands County School District, and $100k for the research of diseases negatively impacting the caladium industry.   In addition to the budget, the Legislature passed several other important bills this session. To make Florida the most veteran friendly state in the nation, we passed the Florida G.I. Bill, which will increase educational and employment opportunities for our brave men and women in uniform. We passed legislation to make sure sexually violent predators face the toughest penalties in the nation. We also took what I consider decisive action to strengthen the child welfare system and aid victims of human trafficking. The work we did this session will be beneficial to many Floridians and take significant steps towards addressing many of the most critical issues we confront as a state.   Below, you will find more details about our work this session. I hope it is helpful.   As always, please contact me if you have any questions. Sincerely,

                                                    Cary Pigman State Representative, District 55
