Sen. Mike Fasano
The Foundation is grateful for the ongoing support of Sen. Mike Fasano, who chairs the Budget Subcommittee on Criminal and Civil Justice Appropriations, and Rep. Richard Glorioso, who chairs the Justice Appropriations Subcommittee.
Fasano and Glorioso each played key roles in securing $1 million in funding for the Florida Access to Civil Legal Assistance Act during this year's legislative session, although the funds were later vetoed by Florida Gov. Rick Scott.
In past years, the state appropriation has been administered by The Florida Bar Foundation
Rep. Rich Glorioso
through a competitive application process to support legal aid organizations working to help Floridians facing job loss, bankruptcy, domestic violence and other civil legal matters.
