The Florida Chamber of Commerce applauds the House State Affairs Committee for advancing a bill that puts Florida citizens back in charge of the Florida Constitution.
Instead of functioning as the revered document that serves as the basis of rights for all Floridians, the Florida Constitution has become a tool by which a few deep pocketed out-of-state billionaires are buying their way onto the ballot to pass their special interest agendas.
“Florida’s constitution is under attack by out-of-state and special interests trying to buy their way onto Florida’s ballot. It’s time to put Floridians back in control of Florida’s constitution, and reduce the influence of well-funded special interests that advance their own agendas at the expense of Floridians.” – Mark Wilson, Florida Chamber of Commerce
HB 7111 is now positioned to be heard by the full House.
Established in 1916 as Florida’s first statewide business advocacy organization, the Florida Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business and the state’s largest federation of employers, chambers of commerce and associations aggressively representing small and large businesses from every industry and every region. The Florida Chamber works within all branches of government to affect those changes set forth in the annual Florida Business Agenda, and which are seen as critical to secure Florida’s future. The Florida Chamber works closely with its Florida Political Operations and the Florida Chamber Foundation. Visit FloridaChamber.com for more information.
