According to the website,

The Guardianship Improvement Task Force was formed with the mission of studying the current status of Guardianships in Florida, with the goal of making recommendations to improve the protection of wards throughout the state.

To accomplish this goal, the Task Force will hear from many stakeholders and study current vulnerabilities. After careful consideration, recommendations will be made to improve the protection and best interests of wards. Some recommendations may be directed for action by the various stakeholders, but the anticipation is that most will be offered as positive legislative recommendations.

The Task Force is being sponsored and staffed by the Florida Court Clerks & Comptrollers association.
