Legislative Review Committee

Vacant

Chair:
Ariel Salazar
legislative@lpf.org
Vice-Chair:
secretary@lpf.org
Mission:
The function of the committee is to review, summarize, and draft LPF policy on proposed legislation during session. Average member workload during session will be to review and report on one or two bills per week with the intention of bringing this information to the Florida electorate. The chair will distribute legislative “homework” to each member on a weekly basis.
Goals:
The committee singles out legislation that is damaging to the liberties and freedoms of Floridians as well as legislation that is favorable and moves us away from being repressed by the state.

Once these pieces of legislation are identified, they are tracked for progress and possible committee substitutes which may change the LPF’s opinion of the legislation. Our goal is to get this information out to the Florida electorate who are otherwise unaware of what is going on while the legislature is in session due to media bias.

We encourage contacting representative and senators to voice your opinions on the legislation. When the Legislative session is out, our goal is to cooperate to contribute in writing legislation, as well as identifying the representatives and senators who strongly opposed liberty legislation and those who heavily favored anti-liberty legislation so the LPF can begin to find suitable replacements.

This committee meets on an ongoing basis on Slack.
