Last week was the final week of legislative committee meetings before regular session begins January 9. I was in Tally with members of our State Board and lobbyist.
We had the wonderful opportunity to meet with our volunteer Lobby Corps members from the Tallahassee League and their leader, Jan RuBino. What a great group of dedicated and passionate League advocates! Thank you for all you do to help us be the face and voice for all our members!
Even though much of the tone in Tallahassee has been overtaken by the issue of harassment and the resulting investigations underway, we were still able to be a part of a stunning win in beating the majority of gun bills down before session even begins. Congrats to all who have been working so hard on this issue.
This week will see the final week of Constitution Revision Commission committee hearings before the holiday break. If interested, You can watch these from home on The Florida Channel Tuesday – Thursday.
Stephanie, our lobbyist, will be there this week and will catch you up next Monday! Please keep pushing for those final petitions needed for Felons Rights Restoration! We are almost there. Just one final push will get us over the mark needed by the end of the year!
Our State Board met over the weekend in our new satellite office in Orlando! Please stop by and say hello to Abdelilah. 1001 N Orange Ave, Orlando FL 32801.
Happy tree trimming and holiday celebrating!
