   10  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   12         Section 1. Paragraph (h) of subsection (1) of section
   13  216.013, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
   14         216.013 Long-range program plan.—State agencies and the
   15  judicial branch shall develop long-range program plans to
   16  achieve state goals using an interagency planning process that
   17  includes the development of integrated agency program service
   18  outcomes. The plans shall be policy based, priority driven,
   19  accountable, and developed through careful examination and
   20  justification of all agency and judicial branch programs.
   21         (1) Long-range program plans shall provide the framework
   22  for the development of budget requests and shall identify or
   23  update:
   24         (h) Legislatively approved output and outcome performance
   25  measures. Each performance measure must identify the associated
   26  activity contributing to the measure from those identified in
   27  accordance with s. 216.023(4)(c) 216.023(4)(b).
   28         Section 2. Present paragraph (b) of subsection (4) of

   33  Legislature by agencies.—
   34         (4)
   35         (b)It is the intent of the Legislature to ensure that
   36  adequate information is made available to allow it to make
   37  informed budget decisions regarding federal programs that offer
   38  funding matches for states that participate in such programs.
   39  Therefore, each state agency and the judicial branch must submit
   40  for each appropriation category within its respective
   41  jurisdiction the following information as part of the annual
   42  legislative budget request:
   43         1.An identification of each program that receives some,
   44  but does not maximize, available federal matching funds.
   45         2.An identification of the amount of state or local funds
   46  that would be required to maximize the amount of federal
   47  matching funds provided to the state.
   48         3.A listing of federal programs that the agency or
   49  judicial branch does not participate in, but for which the
   50  agency could receive federal funding by participating in such
   51  programs.
   52         4.An estimate of the amount of federal funds that the
   53  agency or state does not draw down as a result of non
   54  participation in the federal match programs identified in
   55  subparagraph 3.
   56         Section 3. This act shall take effect July 1, 2017.
