Medicaid expansion is long overdue in Florida. Over 700,000 Floridians would gain health coverage if we joined the 35 other states that have adopted this common sense option.
A constitutional ballot amendment will give people in Florida a say. 700K+ signatures are needed from all counties by January 1, 2020 and the campaign goal is to get 100K by the end of February. To learn more and download the petition form:
The Ban Assault Weapons NOW campaign will place an amendment on the 2020 Florida ballot. 800,000 signatures are needed so that Florida citizens can vote for a common-sense law that our elected leaders won’t support. A poll from Florida Atlantic University reports that 70 percent of Florida voters favor an assault weapons ban.

"This amendment restores the voting rights of Floridians with felony convictions after they complete all terms of their sentence including parole or probation. The amendment would not apply to those convicted of murder or sexual offenses, who would continue to be permanently barred from voting unless the Governor and Cabinet vote to restore their voting rights on a case by case basis." - Florida Association of Counties
