Nikki Fried-A commonsense new bill from @JeffreyBrandes would allow out of state visitors who have access to medical marijuana at home to continue to exercise that right here in FL. Good ideas don’t come with a partisan label - and I’m proud to support this one

Congressman Charlie Crist-As the communist Cuban regime violently oppresses Cubans and deprives them of basic needs, my heart is with the 1.6 million Cubans who call Florida home. Proud to support this bipartisan resolution to stand in solidarity with the Cuban people.

Rep. Carlos G SmithThis week, I filed HB 439 w/@Annette_Taddeo finally creating a ‘Small Business Saturday’ state sales tax holiday in Florida! This type of targeted relief for taxpayers actually drives much needed revenue to those local businesses hardest-hit by COVID— not to huge corporations

Dan Daley-Virginia and NJ are a sign. And we (Dems) need to read the damn sign.

Lauren Book-Florida charges children and their families a wide range of fees and costs for their involvement in the criminal justice system, regardless of their guilt, innocence, or ability to pay — its past time we put a stop to this unfair practice.
