If HB 7089 passes its next committee it will be on its way to the House floor for a vote. We need to stop it now.
HB 7089 raises serious constitutional concerns, is overly broad and would restrict newly enfranchised voters from being able to vote in Florida. TAKE ACTION NOW: Call your state representative and ask them to publicly oppose HB 7089.
Suggested call script:
Hi, my name is _________ and I’m calling to urge State Representative _______ to oppose HB 7089. 1.4 million people throughout Florida just had their voting rights restored by Amendment 4. HB 7089 endangers that right and will undermine the will of Florida voters who approved Voting Restoration Amendment 4.
I’m concerned this bill will restrict the number of people who are eligible to vote and have access to the ballot box in our state. It is too broad and would change the law to allow people other than a judge to determine who can and can’t participate in our democracy and in our communities. The passage of Amendment 4 marked the single greatest victory for voting rights in the U.S. since 1965. As voting rights are under attack all across our country, we need to protect voting rights in Florida.
Please ask State Representative _______ to support voting rights and the will of Florida voters and oppose HB 7089.
