Florida E-Verify Constitutional Amendment Needs Public Support at Upcoming Meetings
Although this is not an FCTP effort, we are forwarding information to Florida members who may want to help in the quest to make E-Verify mandatory in the state.
Dear Florida activist,
The E-Verify constitutional amendment proposal must be approved by 22 of the 37 Florida Constitution Revision Commissioners to be placed on the 2018 ballot. If you have not seen the amendment, it can be viewed at the Floridians for E-Verify website. Floridians for E-Verify Now, the group behind the amendment, says it is critical the Commissioners hear from the public prior to this critical vote. There are three ways you can help:
(1) If you have not already done so, sign the petition to the Commission by going to floridiansforeverifynow.org/petition/
(2) Email the Commissioners and urge them to put E-Verify on the 2018 ballot. First "copy and paste" the comments just below to the body of your email. Then type in the subject line: Please Support E-Verify Proposal 29. And type in the "To" field: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear Commission Member,
Please put E-Verify Proposal 29 on the ballot. Floridians should have a right to vote on this critical solution next November.
(3) Attend the upcoming meetings listed below and, if possible, testify in support of the E-Verify amendment. If you want to testify, or can attend but do not wish to testify, please contact Jack Oliver at email@example.com or 561-284-6853. Those not wanting to testify can waive their right to speak and assign it to others.
