The Tower Forum is a private, non-profit, non-partisan business organization established in 1976. The organization consists of business executives from industries and professions in south Florida. The Tower Forum has become the “go-to” discussion venue in Broward, where these leaders identify critical issues facing our community, engage in public dialogue, and encourage positive change.
Roiled by sexual scandals where Senate and House Republicans disagreed over what to do, dramatically- impacted by the mass shooting in February at Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School, having spent hours debating and finally passing sweeping historic gun and school safety legislation (signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott), failing to fully ban texting while driving, agreeing to pass a bill designed to battle the state’s opioid epidemic, and last minute weekend extension of session to pass Florida’s largest state budget in history, $88.7 billion, the Florida Legislature finally wrapped up its work.
Covering this whirlwind session for many of Florida’s newspapers, our stellar panel of experienced journalists meticulously reported legislative developments daily. Join them and a Broward veteran politician and public servant who will moderate our traditional recap and analysis of the session.
Hon. Chip LaMarca, Commissioner, Broward County Board of County Commissioners
