This message was prepared by ACT for AMERICA and makes both phone and email contact to your respective State Senator's extremely simple. Please take a moment and ensure that we protect AMERICAN LAWS in our Courts.

Senator Alan Hays has authored SB386, the Florida Senate’s American Laws for American Courts (ALAC) bill.

SB386 is common-sense legislation that protects Floridians’ individual, fundamental constitutional rights from foreign laws or legal doctrines where the application of those laws/doctrines would violate those constitutional rights. No particular foreign law is singled out. The proposal applies to them all.
It’s that simple.

Brigitte Gabriel and our national staff have made the passage of this bill a top legislative priority.
SB386 has passed three separate committee votes and is headed to a final Senate floor vote.
At this stage, it is up to the members of the Florida State Senate to send ALAC to Governor Scott to be signed into law. We need to be sure that the members of the Senate understand the strong level of support across Florida for this bill.
Contact by you, a constituent, will be the best chance to see that this important bill passes the Senate and ultimately becomes law. It just takes a moment of your time, but when your actions are joined together with the actions of thousands of other voters across Florida, it makes quite a roar.

*** Important and Time Sensitive Action Item ***
Today, we need you to call and e-mail your Florida State Senator (and pass this request on to everyone you know). You can contact your Senator by following the links below:

Thank you for your help in seeing this bill passed in Florida, so that your state can join the others that now have ALAC laws on the books.


Again my thanks for taking the time to act on this item.

God Bless You and May God Bless Our America

Anyone who wants to network with me regarding Islam, "friend" me on facebook -

CAIR is using a new tactic to defeat ALAC - posting propaganda on YouTube directing the Muslim community to contact Fl. Senators!  You can find many such videos on YouTube - click on them not to watch them but to add comments rebutting the propaganda!

The official Florida Senate vote history for SB 386 is posted here.
This legislation, commonly known as “American Laws for American Courts”, would prohibit Florida courts from considering certain provisions of foreign laws, including Islamic Sharia law, if such provisions are inconsistent with the Florida and United States of America Constitutions.
If Florida courts accept provisions of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign laws or legal codes which are inconsistent with American laws it will undermine public policies enacted by our representative form of government and change our value system.
Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases: Defines "foreign law, legal code, or system"; specifies public policy on application of foreign law, legal code, or system in proceedings relating to dissolution of marriage, support, time-sharing, UCCJEA, & UIFSA; provides that certain decisions rendered under such laws, codes, or systems are void; provides that certain contracts & contract provisions are void; provides for construction of waiver by natural person of person's fundamental liberties, rights, & privileges guaranteed by state or federal constitutions; provides that claims of forum non conveniens or related claims must be denied; provides that act doesn't require or authorize court to adjudicate, or prohibit any religious organization from adjudicating, ecclesiastical matters in violation of specified constitutional provisions or to conflict with any federal treaty or other international agreement to which U.S. is party to specified extent. Full text of SB 386.
A vote by the full Florida House of Representatives on HB 903 Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases is pending.

It worked for me yesterday but not today!  An alternative method is to go to then click on Senators - you'll get a list of them all.  When you click on one it will give you an option to "e-mail this Senator".  A bit time consuming but you can e-mail them one by one!

Comment by Carole McManus on April 22, 2014 at 8:24am

I just posted mine and it worked for me!  Thanks for the "heads up" on this one and the cooperative effort of like-minded groups!

Comment by Leanne King on April 22, 2014 at 6:43am

Larry, I do not know what is wrong. I just tried it again and it worked fine for me. So Thrasher gets two letters from me.:)

Thank you for trying.

I just tried the email link (7:25am) and it didn't work. It just sat there on this page with the spinning circle. I then pasted the link above into a new window and same result, just sat there with the spinning circle.
