Hi, my name is _________ and I’m calling to ask [State Representative Grant / State Representative Yarborough / State Representative Renner / House Speaker Oliva] to support HB 189 and ensure it is on the agenda for a hearing in the House Criminal Justice Subcommittee. 

In Florida, we lock too many people up for far too long. At the same time, we do next to nothing to rehabilitate them while they are in prison. We are wasting millions of taxpayer dollars on warehousing people and nothing on reforming them. This needs to change and HB 189 will do that.

It's so important that our lawmakers support this type of reform in Florida. This bill will encourage rehabilitation in prison, save taxpayer money, reduce recidivism, increase public safety, and reunite families. It would also free up millions that are currently being wasted on warehousing individuals who do not pose a threat to society and do not need to be in prison.

Please ask [State Representative Grant / State Representative Yarborough / State Representative Renner / House Speaker Oliva] to make HB 189 a priority this year. Thank you.
