Demand that the Florida legislature reject any law that circumvents Amendment 4 by making it hard for a returning voter to reclaim their right to vote!
Issue: New bills being pushed by Republicans in the Florida Legislature will circumvent Amendment 4 by making it harder for a returning voter to reclaim their voting rights. These bills would require former felons to pay back all court-ordered fees before being eligible to vote. The House’s version (H.R. 7089) is broad and could include fees never handed out during sentencing, such as interest payments owed to debt collectors if a returning voter falls back on payments. Tell your state legislator to reject any law that imposes restrictions on Amendment 4, including the poll tax imposed by H.R. 7089.
Script: My name is XXX and my address and zip code is XXX. I am a proud member of Palm Beach Indivisibles. The will of the people was expressed by the overwhelming approval of Amendment 4. I demand that you reject any law that makes it harder for a returning voter to reclaim their right to vote, including the poll tax imposed by House Bill 7089.
