Sunset Reviews

The 2006 Government Accountability Act (Ch. 2006-146, Laws of Florida, later modified by Ch. 2007-161, Laws of Florida, and eliminated in 2011), created a legislative Sunset Review process to determine if a public need existed for the continuation of a state agency and its advisory committees. The Legislature required OPPAGA to provide primary research services to support this process.
