The Florida Bar

Legislative or Political Activity Request Form

If you are new to this process, please visit How to Submit a Legislative/Political Activity Request for step-by-step instructions.

This form is for Voluntary Florida Bar Groups to seek approval for legislative or political activities. Political activity is defined in Standing Board Policy  9.11 as “activity by The Florida Bar or a bar group including, but not limited to, filing a comment in a federal administrative law case, taking a position on an action by an elected or appointed governmental official, appearing before a government entity, submitting comments to a regulatory entity on a regulatory matter, or any type of public commentary on an issue of significant public interest or debate.”

Groups may use this worksheet to prepare and share information before submitting an official request. As shown on the worksheet, proposed legislative or political action must be circulated to all bar entities that may be interested in the issue. The Notice of Position Request to Interested Parties Form should be used to solicit input.
