From State Rep Christine Hunschofsky:

March is typically a month that many families take advantage of that weeklong Spring Break. It is the month when we move our clocks ahead and celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, Mardi Gras, and March Madness. For me, as your State Representative, this March signifies the start of the 2023 Legislative Session. The 60-day period begins on March 7 and is scheduled to end on May 5th.

During the session, each State Representative is given seven bill slots to file legislation. Unfortunately, this limitation prohibits me from taking all your great ideas up to Tallahassee. Session is also a busy time as I am constantly monitoring bills as they move through the legislative process, scheduling appointments, and advocating for the needs of my constituents by voting bills up or down.

Currently, I have filed the following bills:

HB 33/35 Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact – which would make Florida a compact state and allow psychologists in our State to also treat their patients in a compact state. This will provide a continuum of care for our residents who are students, snowbirds, or spend time in another compact state.

HB 111, Public Financing of Potentially At-Risk Structures and Infrastructure, requires a sea level impact study on any infrastructure built in flood-prone areas with public dollars.

HB 165 legalizes fentanyl test strips to add this as a legal harm reduction tool

HB 199, Conflicting Employment or Contractual Relationships for Public Officers or Employees, closes a loophole and prevents special district officers or employees from doing business with their district.

HB 521, Time Limitation for Prosecution of Certain Sexual Offenses, allows reporting not just to law enforcement but also to certain licensed medical professionals within 21 days.

You can review all filed legislation, backup documentation, and committee schedules at In the meantime, I will continue to advocate for the priorities that are important to you. Thank you to everyone who filled out our pre-session survey and who contacted my office on legislation. Please continue to share your thoughts with us. I appreciate your input!
