PANAMA CITY BEACH - Florida Senate President Don Gaetz was in town Monday night talking about some of the highlights of the legislative session.

Gaetz was the guest speaker at Monday's Rotary Club of the Emerald Coast meeting.

He addressed the Florida GI bill, which Governor Rick Scott signed into law in April.

The Governor, Gaetz and House Speaker Will Weatherford also appointed three community leaders today to serve on the 'Florida is for Veterans' board.

Prebble Ramswell, Tom Rice and Jim Bagby will serve four years on the Board of Directors of the non-profit, tasked with keeping Florida the most miltary-friendly state.

President Don Gaetz said, "Very important to our area here, Northwest Florida, we need to make sure that this area and our community continue to be the most miltary friendly in the state and continue to make florida the most miltary friendly in the country. That's really job one for the legislature."

Gaetz will step down as Senate President at the end of the year.

He has two years left on his final term as State Senator for our area.
