    1                        A bill to be entitled                      
    2         An act relating to B.K. Roberts Hall at Florida State
    3         University; repealing chapter 73-370, Laws of Florida,
    4         relating to the designation of a Florida State
    5         University facility; rescinding the designation of
    6         B.K. Roberts Hall at Florida State University;
    7         providing legislative intent; providing an effective
    8         date.
   10  Be It Enacted by the Legislature of the State of Florida:
   12         Section 1. Chapter 73-370, Laws of Florida, is repealed.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.
