The Florida Senate’s version of  a bill clarifying the rulemaking process passed its final committee Monday, and no amendment was added to give the governor and the state cabinet the power to repeal agency rules under an expedited “summary process.”

Senate Bill 1382 is similar to the original body of House bill 993, an unexciting, uncontroversial housekeeping measure related to last year’s House Bill 1565, which requires that rules made by state agencies that are projected to cost the state economy more than $200,000 a year to be approved by the legislature.

State Rep. Chris Dorworth, R-Lake Mary, tacked an amendment onto the House version that would allow the governor and the Cabinet to repeal rules under a fast-track process during their first six months in office. The Senate has yet to follow suit, and the measure is now headed to the floor.
