Tallahassee and Tampa: What Does the 2021 Session Mean for Us?

Friday, May 21 at noon

The Tampa Tiger Bay Club will host a luncheon discussion on Friday, May 21 on the local impact of the 2021 Florida Legislature. 

The regular session drew national attention with legislation banning transgender girls’ participation in sports, increased voting restrictions and a so-called anti-riot bill. 

And it’s not over: the Tiger Bay forum comes the same week as a special session on a deal with the Seminole Tribe to expand gambling in Florida, including at the Tribe’s Tampa casino.

For the first time in recent memory, both chambers of the Legislature were led by Tampa Bay lawmakers. How did we fare as a community and who were the biggest winners and losers?

The event will feature Patrick Manteiga, Editor and Publisher of La Gaceta; and Peter Schorsch, Publisher of FloridaPolitics.com.

The forum will be in the ballroom of the Cuban Club in Ybor City. Registration begins at 11:30 and the program will begin promptly at noon. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance by visiting TigerBayClub.com.  Due to ongoing Covid-19 concerns, capacity for the event will be limited and tables will be socially distanced.

PLEASE NOTE: Unfortunately the parking lot behind the Cuban Club will be unavailable. The city parking garage directly across the street has plenty of parking. You will be able to access the Cuban Club elevator through the cantina. A limited number of handicap spaces will also be available first come first serve to members who contact us in advance. 

Tampa Tiger Bay Club President Tom Scherberger will moderate. Only Tiger Bay Club members may ask questions. To become a member, go to https://www.tigerbayclub.com/join-tbc/

For nearly 40 years, the Tampa Tiger Bay Club has presented live discussions of important topics of the day.
