Summary:     This series contains the records of the committees of the Senate of the State of Florida. The records consist of bill files, meetings files, correspondence files and subject files. Files may contain materials such as committee staff analyses of bills, memoranda, vote sheets, attendance sheets, appearance cards, reports, newspaper clippings and correspondence.

    Although the earliest committee materials date from 1964, many committees did not begin maintaining records in an organized manner until the mid-1970s. The quantity and quality of material may vary from committee to committee and by year. By the late 1980s, most committees standardized their recordkeeping.

    For committee materials up through 2011, see the specific Senate committee. In 2012, the Senate began storing all committee records from one session on one disc. The arrangement of the records at the Archives reflects this shift in arrangement by the creating agency. For committee materials from 2012 to the present, see the records within this series.
