Florida Laws, Statutes & Constitution

Laws in Florida are proposed, as defined in the Florida Constitution, by the Legislative Branch of Government. The Legislators in the Senate propose bills which then go to the house of representatives. If passed by both houses, then approved by the Governor, the bill will become law in most cases. An exception would be if the law has to be approved by the federal government.

Every state has it's own constitution to establish the structure, powers and duties of the government in the state. Florida's first constitution was first written and implemented in 1838. We are now on Florida's 6th, which was revised in 1968 and has subsequently been amended. The constitution is reviewed every twenty years to determine whether or not revisions should be made by the legislature.
