F.S. 23.20
23.20 Legislative intent with respect to paperwork reduction.The Legislature finds that:
(1) The paperwork burden associated with collecting information from individuals, private sector organizations, and local governments may have a significant economic impact on these entities as they attempt to comply with the state‚Äôs information reporting requirements.
(2) These information-reporting requirements are found in most interactions between state government and these entities, such as application and permitting processes, title registration, various licensure processes, environmental monitoring, growth management, and tax collection.
(3) The failure of state agencies to identify information they are collecting and to share that information with other agencies, as well as with local governments, has increased the paperwork burden on other entities.
(4) The state must minimize the paperwork burden by evaluating its need for information, determining whether it already has access to the necessary information, and coordinating data collection initiatives at their source.
(5) The collection of information by state government must be done in a manner that balances the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of government with the cost and convenience to individuals, private sector organizations, and local governments providing the information.
