Week Two is in the Books!
Work continued
this week in
Tallahassee as we
completed the second
week of the annual
Legislative Session.
With a full schedule of
committee hearings, we
discussed several
policy areas including
racing animals,
Amendment 1,
renewable energy, and
water policy, along
with several other
pieces of legislation.
I was especially
proud, this week, of the
work related to
Amendment 1. In the
Appropriations
Subcommittee on
General Government,
we passed six bills,
Senate Bills 576, 578,
580, 582, 584, and 586.
These bills would
provide absolute
transparency regarding
the spending of all
Amendment 1 dollars.
I am pleased
with the progress we

have made with the
implementation of
Amendment 1 and I
look forward to
continuing to work
with my colleagues on
this important initiative
in the weeks ahead.
In addition to
the work on
Amendment 1, I was
also pleased to pass
Senate Bill 570, a
common sense, cost
saving measure for
Florida’s Sheriffs,
through its second
committee of reference.

Follow me on Twitter! @CharlieDeanSD5

The bill allows the
mailing of a civil traffic
witness subpoena and
this would benefit
Sheriffs across the
state.
It is my honor
to serve you in the
Florida Senate and, as
always, please do not
hesitate to contact me if
I may ever be of
service to you.
Sincerely,

The Dean Document

Senator
Charlie Dean

On Wednesday,
the trust fund bills
related to Amendment
1, Senate Bills 576, 578,
580, 582, 584, and 586,
sponsored by Senator
Charlie Dean, passed
the Senate
Appropriations
Subcommittee on
General Government.
These bills restructure
trust funds throughout
state agencies to reflect
changes made to the
Constitution by 75% of
Florida voters in
November.
These bills
ensure, as required by
the Constitution, Land
Acquisition Trust Fund
spending is not
comingled with general

revenue or any other
source of revenue.
“I am proud of
the work we have done
on implementing
Amendment 1,” said
Senator Charlie Dean.
“The voters told us of
their desires in
November, loud and
clear, and we must
ensure the will of 75%
of Florida’s voters is
honored. The voters
demanded we provide
them accountability for
every penny spent for
Amendment 1 purposes
and I look forward to
providing it to them.”
Following
passage on Wednesday,
Senate Bills 576, 578,
580, 582, 584, and 586

next head to the Senate
Committee on
Appropriations, the
bills’ last committee of
reference before they
are heard on the Floor
of the Senate.
Also on
Wednesday, the
Senate’s comprehensive
water policy bill, Senate
Bill 918, sponsored by
Senator Dean, was
discussed in the Senate
Committee on
Environmental
Preservation and
Conservation, with
public input being
received.
For more
information on these
bills, please visit

Senate Bill 570 Passes Committee
On Thursday,
the Senate Committee
on Transportation
unanimously passed
Senate Bill 570,
Relating to Service of
Process of Witness
Subpoenas, sponsored
by Senator Charlie
Dean.
The bill allows
civil traffic witness
subpoenas to be mailed
to individuals. Criminal
traffic witness
subpoenas,
misdemeanor witness
subpoenas, and second

and third degree felony
witness subpoenas can
already be mailed under
state law.
“This is a
common sense bill,"
stated Senator Dean.
“Several types of
witness subpoenas can
already be mailed
according to state law
and this bill only makes
sense when you
consider the facts. This
is a cost saving measure
for Sheriffs across the
State of Florida, and I
look forward to this bill

continuing to move
through the Legislative
Process.”
Following
passage through the
Senate Committee on
Transportation, Senate
Bill 570 has next been
referred to the Senate
Committee on Rules.

information on Senate
Bill 570 as it continues

Session, please visit

Senate Bill 230 Passes Committee
Last week, the
Senate Appropriations
Subcommittee on
General Government
unanimously passed
Senate Bill 230,
Relating to Public
Utilities, sponsored by
Senator Charlie Dean.
The bill has
unanimously passed its
first two committees of
reference, the Senate
Committee on
Communications,
Energy, and Public
Utilities and the Senate
Appropriations
Subcommittee on
General Government.
The bill, filed in
response to constituent
concerns raised in the
summer and fall
throughout Senator
Dean’s district, requires
public utilities to have
any change in their
billing cycle approved

by the Public Service
Commission at least one
month in advance of
any proposed change,
limits the length of a
billing cycle change to
seven days, and states
public utilities cannot
charge their customers a
higher rate due to
changes in a monthly
billing cycle.
According to
Senator Dean, “I heard
from my constituents
this summer and fall
regarding this concern.
This was an important
issue and I filed this bill
to directly address the
issues my constituents
raised.”
“As I told the
Public Service
Commission when I
presented in front of
them regarding this
issue, something must
be done to ensure our

constituents are not
taken advantage of by a
public utility company.
As this bill continues to
move through
committees and the
Floor this Session, I
look forward to the
support of my
colleagues to address
this concern.”
Following its
passage last week,
Senate Bill 230 has
been referred to the
Senate Committee on
Fiscal Policy, its last
committee of reference
before it can heard by
the full Senate on the
Senate Floor.
For more
information on Senate
Bill 230, please be sure
to visit
www.flsenate.gov or
call the office of
Senator Charlie Dean at
850-487-5005.

“I heard from my
constituents this

Governor William Pope Duval
William Pope Duval served as Florida’s first territorial governor. Duval
is well noted for his administration’s establishment of Tallahassee as the
territorial capital. Duval was born in 1784 in Mount Comfort, Virginia, and left
home at the age of fourteen to study law in Bardstown, Kentucky. He was
admitted into the bar at nineteen before serving as a United States Congressman
from 1813 to 1815.
On May 18, 1821, William Pope Duval moved to Florida, serving as a
territorial judge in St. Augustine. After a few short months, President James
Monroe appointed Duval as the territorial governor. Duval served as the
territorial governor from 1822 to 1834. During his twelve years as governor,
Duval divided Florida into four territories, established a local court system, and
signed the first piece of legislation in Florida.
From 1839 to 1842, Duval was a Senator in the Florida Legislature. In
1845, he served as a Commissioner, settling the North Florida boundary
dispute. Duval was also a first grand master of the Masonic Grand Lodge of
Florida. In 1848, Duval moved to Texas to be with his children, who had all
started families of their own, before passing away in 1854 in Washington, D.C.
Question of the Week: Duval Street, named for Governor Duval, which runs
from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean, is located in which Florida city?
The first correct answer receives a mention in next week’s Dean Document!
Congratulations to Stephen Forsyth from Lake City, Florida who was the
first person to get last week’s answer “Zero” correct!
