Current Bill Summary

SCS/HB 2084 - This act establishes provisions relating to political subdivisions.

DEADLINE FOR FILING DECLARATIONS OF CANDIDACY (Sections 115.127 and B)

Under current law, the period for filing a declaration of candidacy in certain political subdivisions and special districts is from 8:00 a.m. on the 17th Tuesday prior to the election until 5:00 p.m. on the 14th Tuesday prior to the election. This act changes that period to 8:00 a.m. on the 16th Tuesday prior to the election until 5:00 p.m. on the 13th Tuesday prior to the election, unless the 13th Tuesday prior to an election falls on a holiday, then the closing of filing shall be at 5:00 p.m. on the next day that is not a holiday.

This provision is identical to SB 774 (2024), to a provision in SB 926 (2024), to HB 1604 (2024), to HB 2225 (2024), and to provisions in HCS/HB 1525 (2024), in HCS/HB 2140 (2024), in HCS/HB 2206 (2024), in HCS/HB 2895 (2024), in SCS/SB 346 (2023), and in CCS/HS/HCS/SS#2/SCS/SB 96 (2023); and is substantially similar to HCS/HB 1214 (2023) and provisions in HCS/HBs 267 & 347 (2023) and in HCS/HB 783 (2023).

This provision shall become effective on November 6, 2024. (Section B)

CONSOLIDATED PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICTS (Section 182.645)

This act authorizes the board of trustees of a consolidated public library district to change the dates of the fiscal year.

This provision is identical to SB 1124 (2024), to provisions in HB 1512 (2024) and in HCS/HB 2206 (2024), to SB 412 (2023), to HB 437 (2023), and to provisions in HCS/SS 155 (2023), in HCS/SS/SB 222 (2023), and in HCS/HB 986 (2023).
