STATEMENT from Florida Senate Democratic Leader Lauren Book (D-Plantation) on GOP Special Session Plan
"'Floridians deserve freedom -- but only if you think like we do.' That's the message broadcast by Florida's GOP leaders this morning as they propose legislation to strip business owners and local governments of the freedom to decide what's best for their workers and their communities. This proposed legislation not only inhibits that very freedom, but also dangerously threatens the safety of workers and communities by handicapping hospitals and healthcare facilities who are reliant on federal funding to keep our communities safe as well as stripping protections from workers with the abandonment of OSHA."
