Florida has a large and growing adult population. The State as a whole has a population approaching 20 million, and people over 60 make up nearly 23 percent of that population.
By 2020, the State is expected to have a population of more then 23.5 million, and people over 60 will make up over 28 percent of that population.

Contact your lawmakers and demand that they give these bills a hearing during the 2018 legislative session.
