NO on SB 856 - In Rules Committee TODAY at 10:30 AM.
If passed, this bill would prohibit school districts and local unions from providing any annual contract to teachers based upon their performance evaluation, even if they were evaluated as high performing. They would have no job security.

NO on SB 1238 - Special Orders Calendar in Senate (floor vote)
On Tuesday, the Senate Rules Committee approved Senate Bill 1238, a bill that would allow utilities like Florida Power & Light to charge their customers for risky out of state fracking exploration. This bill would have failed in committee if Democratic Senators Oscar Braynon II, Perry Thurston and Lauren Book had voted no. That's shameful.
Their decision moves forward legislation which prioritizes the profits of utility companies over the well-being of Florida's seniors, ratepayers, and retailers, as well as families out of state dealing with fracking in their communities.
