The bill eliminates the Florida State Employees Charitable Contribution Campaign from law, and provides that an organization, entity, or person may not intentionally solicit a state employee through any means for fundraising or business purposes within work areas during work hours. However, the bill does not prohibit state-approved communications by entities with whom the state has contracted to provide employee benefits or services; non-coercive, voluntary communications between state employees in workplace areas; or activities at authorized public events occurring in non-work areas of state owned or leased facilities.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect July 1, 2018.
