2019 Legislative Session Scorecard
This year, voting rights, immigrants’ rights, and our broken criminal justice system were among the most high-profile issues considered by the Legislature.
With strong support from Governor Ron DeSantis, the legislature passed anti-civil liberties bills that will:
- Tear families apart and codify racial profiling into law
- Restrict Amendment 4 and bar hundreds of thousands of Floridians from voting
- Exacerbate the school to prison pipeline
- And, divert taxpayer dollars from public school education to fund private religious schools.
