Speaker Cretul’s goal is to ensure that the activities of the House’s Deepwater Horizon response work groups are accessible to the public, to the extent practical. He is also mindful of the expense for member travel to Tallahassee during this interim. While notice of work group discussions are not required, he believes that all meetings of significance involving legislative business on these issues should be open to the public and given as much advance notice as possible.
Speaker Cretul is directing that all work group meetings be noticed and accessible, to the extent practical. Therefore, work group conference calls (and call-in numbers), as well as all site visits and related events and work plans, are scheduled to be listed regularly on the Deepwater Horizon Response and Recovery Plan page on the House web site, www.myfloridahouse.gov beginning tomorrow, Thursday, July 29, 2010.
We will try to provide as much advance notice as possible, but interested persons should check the house website regularly for schedule updates. As a general rule, if an activity is scheduled on the same day for which it is planned, I will send out an advisory. Otherwise, please check the web site.
In the meantime, FYI:
