SB 1794 Veto Coalition

Veto of SB 1794 would uphold citizens’ rights to participate in direct democracy

A united group of advocacy organizations – including League of Women Voters of Florida, ACLU of Florida, Common Cause Florida, Florida AFL-CIO, Florida Conservation Voters, LatinoJustice PRLDEF, Organize Florida, Progress Florida, Sierra Club Florida, Southern Poverty Law Center, and The New Florida Majority – have sent a letter to Gov. Ron DeSantis that requests his veto of SB 1794. This bill severely limits citizens’ ability to petition their government and currently awaits the Governor’s final signature.
