   91         Section 1. Subsection (2) of section 193.023, Florida
   92  Statutes, is amended to read
   93         193.023 Duties of the property appraiser in making
   94  assessments.—
   95         (2) In making his or her assessment of the value of real
   96  property, the property appraiser is required to physically
   97  inspect the property at least once every 5 years. Where
   98  geographically suitable, and at the discretion of the property
   99  appraiser, the property appraiser may use image technology in
  100  lieu of physical inspection to ensure that the tax roll meets
  101  all the requirements of law. The Department of Revenue shall
  102  establish minimum standards for the use of image technology
  103  consistent with standards developed by professionally recognized
  104  sources for mass appraisal of real property. However, the
  105  property appraiser shall physically inspect any parcel of
  106  taxable or state-owned real property upon the request of the
  107  taxpayer or owner.
  108         Section 2. Paragraph (a) of subsection (3) of section
  109  193.085, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
  110         193.085 Listing all property.—
  111         (3)(a) The department will coordinate with all other
  112  departments of state government to ensure that the several
  113  property appraisers are properly notified annually of state
  114  ownership of real property. The department shall promulgate
  115  regulations to ensure that All forms of local government,
  116  special taxing districts, multicounty districts, and
  117  municipalities shall provide written annual notification to
  118  properly notify annually the several property appraisers of any
  119  and all real property owned by any of them so that ownership of
  120  all such property will be properly listed.
  121         Section 3. Paragraph (z) is added to subsection (8) of
  122  section 213.053, Florida Statutes, to read:
  123         213.053 Confidentiality and information sharing.—
  124         (8) Notwithstanding any other provision of this section,
  125  the department may provide:
  126         (z) Information relative to ss. 253.03(8) and 253.0325 to
  127  the Department of Environmental Protection in the conduct of its
  128  official business.
  129  
  130  Disclosure of information under this subsection shall be
  131  pursuant to a written agreement between the executive director
  132  and the agency. Such agencies, governmental or nongovernmental,
  133  shall be bound by the same requirements of confidentiality as
  134  the Department of Revenue. Breach of confidentiality is a
  135  misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided by s.
  136  775.082 or s. 775.083.
  137         Section 4. Section 216.0152, Florida Statutes, is amended
  138  to read:
  139         216.0152 Inventory of state-owned facilities or state
  140  occupied facilities.—
  141         (1) The Department of Management Services shall develop and
  142  maintain an automated inventory of all facilities owned, leased,
  143  rented, or otherwise occupied or maintained by any agency of the
  144  state, or by the judicial branch, or the water management
  145  districts, except those with less than 3,000 square feet. The
  146  inventory data shall be provided by the owning or operating
  147  agency and shall include the location, occupying agency,
  148  ownership, size, condition assessment, valuations, operating
  149  costs, maintenance record, age, parking and employee facilities,
  150  building uses, full-time equivalent occupancy, known
  151  restrictions or historic designations, leases or subleases,
  152  associated revenues, and other information as required in a rule
  153  adopted by the department. The department shall use this data
  154  for determining maintenance needs, conducting strategic
  155  analyses, including, but not limited to, analyzing and
  156  identifying candidates for surplus, valuation, and disposition,
  157  and life-cycle cost evaluations of the facility. Inventory data
  158  shall be provided to the department on or before July 1 of each
  159  year by the owning or operating agency in a format prescribed by
  160  the department. The inventory need not include a condition
  161  assessment or maintenance record of facilities not owned by a
  162  state agency, or by the judicial branch, or a water management
  163  district. The term “facility,” as used in this section, means
  164  buildings, structures, and building systems, but does not
  165  include transportation facilities of the state transportation
  166  system. For reporting purposes, the Department of Transportation
  167  shall develop and maintain an inventory of transportation
  168  facilities of the state transportation system. The Department of
  169  Transportation shall also identify and dispose of surplus
  170  property pursuant to ss. 337.25 and 339.04. The Board of
  171  Governors of the State University System and the Department of
  172  Education, respectively, shall develop and maintain an
  173  inventory, in the manner prescribed by the Department of
  174  Management Services, of all state university and community
  175  college facilities and shall make the data available in a format
  176  acceptable to the Department of Management Services. By March
  177  15, 2011, the department shall adopt rules pursuant to ss.
  178  120.536 and 120.54 to administer this section.
  179         (2) For the purpose of assessing needed repairs and
  180  renovations of facilities, the Department of Management Services
  181  shall update its inventory with condition information for
  182  facilities of 3,000 square feet or more and cause to be updated
  183  the other inventories required by subsection (1) at least once
  184  every 5 years, but the inventories shall record acquisitions of
  185  new facilities and significant changes in existing facilities as
  186  they occur. The Department of Management Services shall provide
  187  each agency and the judicial branch with the most recent
  188  inventory applicable to that agency or to the judicial branch.
  189  Each agency and the judicial branch shall, in the manner
  190  prescribed by the Department of Management Services, report
  191  significant changes in the inventory as they occur. Items
  192  relating to the condition and life-cycle cost of a facility
  193  shall be updated at least every 5 years.
  194         (3) The Department of Management Services shall, every 3
  195  years, publish a complete report detailing this inventory and
  196  shall publish an annual update of the report. The department
  197  shall furnish the updated report to the Executive Office of the
  198  Governor and the Legislature no later than September 15 of each
  199  year.
  200         Section 5. Section 216.0153, Florida Statutes, is created
  201  to read:
  202         216.0153 Comprehensive state-owned real property system.
  203  Whereas, the Legislature finds that it is in the best interest
  204  of the state to identify surplus property and dispose of such
  205  property owned by the state that is unnecessary to achieving the
  206  state’s responsibilities, that may cost more to maintain than
  207  the revenue generated, that does not serve any public purpose,
  208  or from which the state may derive a substantially similar
  209  public purpose under private ownership.
  210         (1) The Department of Environmental Protection shall
  211  create, administer, and maintain a comprehensive system for all
  212  state lands and real property leased, owned, rented, and
  213  otherwise occupied or maintained by any state agency, by the
  214  judicial branch, and by any water management district. The
  215  comprehensive state-owned real property system shall allow the
  216  Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust Fund to
  217  perform its statutory responsibilities and the Division of State
  218  Lands in the Department of Environmental Protection to conduct
  219  strategic analyses and prepare annual valuation and disposition
  220  analyses and recommendations for all state real property assets.
  221         (a) The comprehensive state-owned real property system must
  222  contain a database that includes an accurate inventory of all
  223  real property that is leased, owned, rented, occupied, or
  224  managed by the state, the judicial branch, or the water
  225  management districts.
  226         (b) The Division of State Lands in the Department of
  227  Environmental Protection shall be the statewide custodian of the
  228  real property information and shall be accountable for its
  229  accuracy.
  230         (c) All state agencies and water management districts shall
  231  enter required real property information in the comprehensive
  232  system according to standards published by the Division of State
  233  Lands.
  234         (2) The comprehensive state-owned real property system must
  235  accomplish the following objectives:
  236         (a) Eliminate the need for redundant state real property
  237  information collection processes and state agency information
  238  systems.
  239         (b) Reduce the need to lease or acquire additional real
  240  property as a result of an annual surplus valuation,
  241  utilization, and disposition analysis.
  242         (c) Enable regional planning as a tool for cost-effective
  243  buy, sell, and lease decisions.
  244         (d) Increase state revenues and maximize operational
  245  efficiencies by annually identifying those state-owned real
  246  properties that are the best candidates for surplus or
  247  disposition.
  248         (e) Ensure all state real property is identified by
  249  collaborating and integrating with the Department of Revenue
  250  data as submitted by the county property appraisers.
  251         (f) Implement required functionality and processes for
  252  state agencies to electronically submit all applicable real
  253  property information using a web browser application.
  254         (3) By October 1, 2010, and annually thereafter, the
  255  Division of State Lands in the Department of Environmental
  256  Protection shall submit to the Governor, the President of the
  257  Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives a report
  258  that lists the state-owned real property recommended for
  259  disposition, including a report by the Department of Management
  260  Services of surplus buildings recommended for disposition. The
  261  report shall include specific information that documents the
  262  valuation and analysis process used to identify the specific
  263  state-owned real property recommended for disposition.
  264         Section 6. Subsection (8) of section 253.03, Florida
  265  Statutes, is amended to read:
  266         253.03 Board of trustees to administer state lands; lands
  267  enumerated.—
  268         (8)(a) The Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement
  269  Trust Fund shall prepare, using tax roll data provided by the
  270  Department of Revenue, or the county property appraisers, an
  271  annual inventory of all publicly owned lands within the state.
  272  Such inventory shall include all lands owned by any unit of
  273  state government or local government; by the Federal Government,
  274  to the greatest extent possible; and by any other public entity.
  275  The board shall submit a summary report of the inventory and a
  276  list of major discrepancies between the inventory and the tax
  277  roll data to the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the
  278  House of Representatives on or before March 1 of each year.
  279         (b) In addition to any other parcel data available, the
  280  inventory shall include a legal description or proper reference
  281  thereto, the number of acres or square feet within the
  282  boundaries, and the assessed value of all publicly owned
  283  uplands. To the greatest extent practicable, the legal
  284  description or proper reference thereto and the number of acres
  285  or square feet shall be determined for all publicly owned
  286  submerged lands. For the purposes of this subsection, the term
  287  “submerged lands” means publicly owned lands below the ordinary
  288  high-water mark of fresh waters and below the mean high-water
  289  line of salt waters extending seaward to the outer jurisdiction
  290  of the state. By October 31 of each year, the Department of
  291  Revenue shall furnish, in machine-readable form, annual, current
  292  tax roll data for public lands to the board to be used in
  293  compiling the inventory.
  294         (c) By September 30 of each year, the Department of Revenue
  295  shall furnish to the board, in electronic form, the approved
  296  preliminary tax roll data for public lands to be used in
  297  compiling the inventory. By November 30 December 31 of each
  298  year, the board shall prepare and provide to each state agency
  299  and local government and any other public entity which holds
  300  title to real property, including any water management district,
  301  drainage district, navigation district, or special taxing
  302  district, a list of the real property owned by such entity,
  303  required to be listed on county assessment rolls, using tax roll
  304  data provided by the Department of Revenue. By January March 31
  305  of the following year, each such entity shall review its list
  306  and inform the appropriate property appraiser and the board of
  307  any corrections to the list. The appropriate county property
  308  appraiser Department of Revenue shall enter provide for entering
  309  such corrections on the appropriate county tax roll.
  310         (d) Whenever real property is listed on the real property
  311  assessment rolls of the respective counties in the name of the
  312  State of Florida or any of its agencies, the listing shall not
  313  be changed in the absence of a recorded deed executed by the
  314  State of Florida or the state agency in whose name the property
  315  is listed. If, in preparing the assessment rolls, the several
  316  property appraisers within the state become aware of the
  317  existence of a recorded deed not executed by the state and
  318  purporting to convey real property listed on the assessment
  319  rolls as state-owned, the property appraiser shall immediately
  320  forward a copy of the recorded deed to the state agency in whose
  321  name the property is listed.
  322         (e) The board shall use tax roll data, which shall be
  323  provided by the Department of Revenue, to assist in the
  324  identification and confirmation of publicly held lands. Lands
  325  that are held by the state or a water management district and
  326  lands that are purchased by the state, a state agency, or a
  327  water management district and that are deemed not essential or
  328  necessary for conservation purposes are subject to review for
  329  surplus sale.
  330         Section 7. Subsections (8) and (16) of section 253.034,
  331  Florida Statutes, are amended, and subsection (17) is added to
  332  that section, to read:
  333         253.034 State-owned lands; uses.—
  334         (8)(a) Notwithstanding other provisions of this section,
  335  the Division of State Lands is directed to prepare a state
  336  inventory of all federal lands and all lands titled in the name
  337  of the state, a state agency, a water management district, or a
  338  local government on a county-by-county basis. To facilitate the
  339  development of the state inventory, each county shall direct the
  340  appropriate county office with authority over the information to
  341  provide the division with a county inventory of all lands
  342  identified as federal lands and lands titled in the name of the
  343  state, a state agency, a water management district, or a local
  344  government. The Legislature recognizes the value of the state’s
  345  conservation lands as water recharge areas and air filters and,
  346  in an effort to better understand the scientific underpinnings
  347  of carbon sequestration, carbon capture, and greenhouse gas
  348  mitigation, to inform policymakers and decisionmakers, and to
  349  provide the infrastructure for landowners, the Division of State
  350  Lands shall contract with an organization experienced and
  351  specialized in carbon sinks and emission budgets to conduct an
  352  inventory of all lands that were acquired pursuant to
  353  Preservation 2000 and Florida Forever and that were titled in
  354  the name of the Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement
  355  Trust Fund. The inventory shall determine the value of carbon
  356  capture and carbon sequestration. Such inventory shall consider
  357  potential carbon offset values of changes in land management
  358  practices, including, but not limited to, replanting of trees,
  359  routine prescribed burns, and land use conversion. Such an
  360  inventory shall be completed and presented to the board of
  361  trustees by July 1, 2009.
  362         (b) The state inventory must distinguish between lands
  363  purchased by the state or a water management district as part of
  364  a core parcel or within original project boundaries, as those
  365  terms are used to meet the surplus requirements of subsection
  366  (6), and lands purchased by the state, a state agency, or a
  367  water management district which are not essential or necessary
  368  for conservation purposes.
  369         (c) In any county having a population of 75,000 or fewer,
  370  or a county having a population of 100,000 or fewer which is
  371  contiguous to a county having a population of 75,000 or fewer,
  372  in which more than 50 percent of the lands within the county
  373  boundary are federal lands and lands titled in the name of the
  374  state, a state agency, a water management district, or a local
