Please Note: The Florida Constitution requires disclosure of public records unless a Florida Statute exempts the records from the disclosure requirement. Therefore, the contents of your email and your email address are subject to public disclosure unless a specific statute exempts them from the Constitution’s disclosure requirements. Most emails to and from House members and staff that were sent or received in connection with the transaction of legislative business are public records that will be made available to the public and media upon request.
