Florida House Bill 923, which is the designation given to Save Siesta Key’s quest for the incorporation of the island, is in the process of receiving review in the Florida Legislature.
The bill was filed Feb. 17 by state Rep. Fiona McFarland and has been assigned to three committees. The first of those — the Local Administration, Federal Affairs & Special Districts Subcommittee — is scheduled to present its report to lawmakers 10 a.m. Monday, March 20.
After committee reviews and, presuming it moves ahead, both the state’s House and Senate must approve the measure (along with the governor). Then, it would come back to Siesta Key voters in the form of a referendum vote that would take place in November of 2024 during the general election.
