FAAST Legislative Alert

Our work isn't finished!

In case you were unaware, the 2015 Florida Legislative Session had an unexpected and chaotic ending.  The 60-day session was scheduled to conclude on May 1.  Instead the Florida House adjourned on April 28 while the Florida Senate last met on April 29.  

This abrupt ending resulted in many bills not reaching their expected conclusions.  The FAAST Legislative Priority, HB 69/SB 330, Rescue Devices for Missing Persons with Special Needs is in this category.

Please help FAAST in having  HB 69/SB 330 added to the Special Session by emailing, calling, and faxing Governor Scott, Speaker Crisafulli, and President Gardiner and asking them to add this bill to the 2015 Special Legislative Session.
