At almost every turn, the leadership of the Florida Legislature has undermined local communities by passing regressive laws overruling local government action at the behest of corporate special interests. These are known as “preemption” laws, and they come with major negative consequences for Floridians, our neighborhoods, our health, our environment, and our financial security.
Stand up for local democracy: demand state lawmakers stop attacking our local communities and support HB 6065/SB 1520. These common sense proposals would undo corporate-driven preemption laws that currently prevent communities from enacting laws supporting working families.
Petition To The Florida Legislature
We, the below signed Floridians, urge you to stand up against efforts to subvert and undo local democracy in the form of preemption laws, and to support HB 6065/SB 1520. This legislation would undo corporate-driven preemption laws that currently prevent communities from enacting laws supporting working families.
According to the United Way's ALICE report, 45% of Floridians are working poor. It's time to unleash local democracy in solving this challenge. Please support HB 6065/SB 1520.
