Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls, Senate President Wilton Simpson Issue Joint Statement on Governor DeSantis’ Election Integrity Proposal

Tallahassee —

Today, Florida House Speaker Chris Sprowls and Senate President Wilton Simpson issued the following joint statement on Governor DeSantis’ election integrity proposal:

“We join the Governor in his efforts to continue to make Florida the national leader on election integrity, and we look forward to working with him on this important issue. Rather than resting on our laurels and congratulating one another on a successful 2020 election, our time is best spent preparing for 2022 and beyond. We don’t want to backslide. We are here to keep Florida a model for the rest of America.”
