Hearing from YOU is extremely important to keep this bill dead! We have until 4 pm on Tuesday to make sure that our voice is heard!
BACKGROUND & EXPLANATION:
On Monday, February 8, 2016, SB 120, the Florida Competitive Workforce Act, (adding sexual orientation and gender identity and expression to FL Civil Rights Act) by Sen. Abruzzo was heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee. The room was packed to overflowing with people; about 150 supporters from around the state wee there to oppose to this dangerous legislation.
A vote was taken and the bill failed in a tie vote. Immediately after, a slick technical maneuver took place in which a motion to reconsider the the bill was decided on at Tuesday's meeting from 4-6pm. Tonight on Committee Chairman, Senator Diaz de la Portilla, promised to bring the bill up for consideration – even though the committee already has over 20 bills on the agenda! This seems like a move to strong arm one of the Senators who voted no to switch their vote! If the five Senators who voted no on this bill, hold the line, and appear at this meeting and vote no again then the bill will still die.
