On September 9, 2019, the Financial Impact Estimating Conference, in accordance with the provisions of section 100.371(5)(a), Florida Statutes, forwarded to the Office of the Attorney General a financial impact statement on the initiative petition. Section 16.061(3), Florida Statutes, provides for this Honorable Court to review the financial impact statement to determine whether it is in accordance with section 100.371, Florida Statutes.
