Florida’s Legislative Session is winding down, but the attacks on working families are still coming at full force. Committee meetings have ended so the final shape of our dark dystopian future is taking focus. The politicians and their big-industry allies continued the assault on public education, local control and healthcare access, setting up an apocalyptic reality for working Floridians. Thankfully, the Working Families Lobby Corps was there to meet their attack and help preserve Florida for future generations.
Week 7 of Legislative Session saw the politicians pull out all the stops in their attack on working families. Political tricks and last-minute amendments were used to be sure the big-money special interests were taken care of at the expense of Florida’s future generations. Public school safety and funding, access to healthcare and our constitutional rights were all under attack, and the Working Families Lobby Corps was there to fight back!
