Time to Pay Attention to What’s Going On at the State Level!This is from David Johnson who has been doing such a great job in tracking state legislation and maintaining a list of all the bills each year before the State Legislature.
Members of the 2021-2 Florida Legislature are being sworn in this week. High on their list of priorities will be consideration of the Governor’s proposed bill that will threaten and suppress citizens’ rights to free assembly guaranteed by our Constitution and a re-balancing of the State Budget necessitated by the loss of jobs, tourism and revenue resulting from the ongoing pandemic.Since there will be no 2021 Legislative Day event in Tallahassee next year, our focus must now turn to conducting virtual meetings with our legislators this January in advance of the 2021 session scheduled to begin March 2.You are encouraged to form teams in collaboration with members of Unitarian Universalist congregations, your local Indivisible group, Sierra Club chapter and other like minded organizations such as LWV and NOW. In your meetings you and others on your team will address selected items from the Legislative Agenda, share stories how proposed legislation affects you and your family and make your progressive voices heard.Here is the link to the current version of the Legislative Agenda. Check this link from time to time as it is subject to revision as we get closer to the legislative session https://1drv.ms/w/s!AgbSWBZf00tLgYFp4BWEkmMKTtoUNA
To learn more about the legislative process and tips for virtual meetings, please register here for the Legislative Training Workshop to be held the first week in December.
Please also share this link with others in your congregation or organization and encourage them to register as well.
