FL: Florida Lawmakers Weigh Rules on Union Dues, [Sex Offense] Ballot Measures

[nbcmiami.com – 3/7/21]

The Florida Legislature enters the second week of its 60-day session Monday as it dives deeper into the process of winnowing the thousands of bills before it.

In the House Justice Appropriations Subcommittee, lawmakers in the coming week are considering a key change in sexual offender laws.

Sexual offenders released from prison are supposed to register with authorities. But a court had ruled that sexual offenders don’t have to register if they hadn’t finished paying off any restitution they might owe.

In other words, you’re not legally obligated to register as a sex offender until you’ve paid your debts.

That’s the same reasoning Gov. Ron DeSantis and legislative Republicans have used to keep some felons from voting.

Florida is rife with politically motivated legislation. With past successful ballot measures threatening to upset the political status quo, now they want to raise the threshold for passing new ones, ensuring that newly enfranchised voters can’t easily influence future initiatives.

The politics in this state stinks more than the red tide that often washes dead fish up on its beaches.

Florida the state that’s scorched earth for anyone who isn’t connected politically. That’s why Senator Rick Largest Medical Fraud gets elected as Governor and Senator. Ron DUI Book stays head of the Miami Homeless Board. Senator Lauren Conflict of Interest Book gets away with anyone due to being a professional victim. Rep. Matt Reoffending Drunk Gaetz wins in the Florida panhandle with daddy’s influence. Governor Ron Donstaton giving vaccines to the wealthy and violating human rights. God forbid the ole boy system gets threatened, gotta take people out.
