State Rep Chip LaMarca, in his latest newsletter, provides a wrap-up the recent state legislative session that concluded on March 14 in Tallahassee. The newsletter talks about funding coming to our area in the budget as well as bills filed and those that passed. Overall, there were 3,755 bills filed and 285 bills passed both houses of the state legislature.
One issue of great interest to the Galt Mile was a bill to designate a section of A1A from the beginning to the end of Galt Ocean Drive as the “Pio Ieraci Memorial Drive.” Pio served as the president of the Galt Mile Community Association for over 20 years, and was a leader on neighborhood, city, county and state issues important to the Galt Mile. The bill was sponsored by Rep LaMarca. The bill is awaiting the governor’s signature.
