Chapter 73-370, Laws of Florida, is repealed. 13 Section 2. (1) The Legislature intends that the repeal of 14 chapter 73-370, Laws of Florida, as provided in this act 15 implements the recommendation of the Florida State University 16 President’s Advisory Panel on University Namings and 17 Recognitions to seek legislative action to legally remove the 18 legislatively designated facility name of B.K. Roberts Hall, 19 which recommendation was accepted by the president of Florida 20 State University. 21 (2) The Legislature further intends that the repeal does 22 not constitute a legislative position regarding the ultimate 23 disposition of the original designation; rather, the Legislature 24 recognizes the university’s transparent, collaborative, and 25 thorough review process, which resulted in the recommendation 26 that precipitated this repeal, and further intends that the 27 university is solely responsible for faithful implementation of 28 the panel’s recommendations regarding this issue. 29 Section 3. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law.
