The Floridans will get their chance to finally get their plan for their state’s reopening under way in about a week.
After a year-long battle, the state is moving towards getting all state offices open to the public on Sunday.
The reopening date was announced by Gov.
Rick Scott on Monday, as the governor was attending a state-wide tourism conference in New Orleans.
In 2016, Florida’s Republican-controlled Legislature passed legislation that allows the public to request that some public buildings reopen, and that a reopening authority be created to make the requests.
A new Florida law passed last year makes it easier for people to ask for the reopening of their state government, and it’s also required for any business or nonprofit group that wants to open.
“The governor and I are hopeful that we will get to the point where we will be able to open all state buildings to the general public this week, and I want to be clear that it’s not the last time we will see Floridas public buildings open,” Scott said at the conference.
The governor was joined by Govs.
Rick Kemp and Scott, as well as the State Treasurer and Treasurer’s office.
The legislature also passed a new bill to pay for a new public information system to help people locate services and information.
Scott, who is in the final year of a five-year term, is running for re-election.
