Latvala removed as Appropriations chair while under investigation

November 6, 2017

Florida Senate President Joe Negron has removed Sen. Jack Latvala as Appropriations chairman while he is under investigation for sexual harassment.

Here is the memo Inweekly received from Negron’s office:

While the independent, third party investigation regarding Senator Latvala is pending, I believe it is in the best interest of the Senate for another Senator to temporarily serve as Chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations. Senator Latvala’s other responsibilities in the Senate will remain unchanged. Accordingly, effective immediately, I am making the following Committee Chair Assignments:

· Committee on Appropriations, Senator Rob Bradley

· Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Tourism and Economic Development, Senator Wilton Simpson
