Florida Statutes Section 11.044 - Legislative Intent And Purpose. (Fla. Stat. § 11.044)

11.044 Legislative intent and purpose.—The Legislature finds that the operation of open and responsible government requires the fullest opportunity to be afforded to the people to petition their government for the redress of grievances and to express freely their opinions on legislative action. Further, the Legislature finds that preservation of the integrity of the governmental decisionmaking process is essential to the continued functioning of an open government. Therefore, in order to preserve and maintain the integrity of the process and to better inform the citizens of the efforts to influence legislative branch action, the Legislature finds it necessary to require the public disclosure of the identity, expenditures, and activities of certain persons who attempt to influence actions of the legislative branch.

History.—s. 1, ch. 93-121.
