Presented in conjunction with the Society of Professional Journalists, FLSunshine is a searchable and navigable copy of the Florida Public Records statute and Florida Meetings statute (Chapter 119 and Chapter 286), also known as the Sunshine Law.

FLSunshine provides three views of the statute:
  • You can navigate through the sections.
  • You can search for and individual word or phrase. These words will show up in their respective sections highlighted in yellow. Clicking on the 'Next' button will advance through each instance of the word, with a pop up display letting you know how far along you are in the search.
  • You can copy and paste any part of the statute into the Clips section

FLSunshine support full landscape mode throughout the program.
