Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice Carlos Muñiz is scheduled to address the Board of Governors when it meets January 27 in Tallahassee to consider proposed rule amendments, regular committee reports, and various appointments.

The appearance is an annual tradition that previous chief justices have used to announce court priorities in the upcoming spring legislative session — which this year begins March 7.

However, the remarks would be Muñiz’s first to the board as chief justice, and it is not clear if he intends to follow the tradition or reserve time, as his predecessor did, to entertain questions.
