FALA Government Affairs
FALA's Director of Government Affairs leads all legislative activity; and works closely with FALA's two contracted Lobbyist year-round. One of the most important aspect of FALA's work centers on legislative issues that continue throughout the year.
Each week the Florida Legislature entertains Bills that affect Floridians. The goal of the Florida Assisted Living Association is to ensure that we keep members apprised of legislation that directly affects assisted living facilities and the residents that reside in Florida ALFs and Adult Family Care Homes. Each we update our Legislative Reports and the Leslie Dughi Corner during the legislative session.
