Please note: Florida has a very broad public records law. Most written communications to or from state officials regarding state business are public records available to the public and media, upon request. Your email communication may therefore be subject to public disclosure. If you do not want your email communications available to the public, do not send electronic mail to this entity. Instead, contact this office by phone or in writing.
