ACSOL/FAC Florida Action Alert 1/22 Deadline: Fight SB 1230 and HB 1235 (Travel, Residence, Registration)

Source: Florida Action Committee (FAC) 1/21/24

Attention Florida residents: Deadline to take action is Monday, January 22!

What you need to know about the dangerous SB 1230 and HB 1235 bills:

SB 1230 and HB 1235 are identical bills where our legislators are attempting to amend the Sexual Predators Act (FS 775.21) and the Sexual Offenders Act (943.0435).

SB 1230 is on the agenda for the Senate Criminal Justice Committee on January 23, 2024, (Tuesday) at 1:00 pm, 37 Senate Building, so contact them before then.

The sponsor of SB 1230 is Senator Jennifer Bradley, representing District 6 (Columbia, Baker, Union, Bradford, Clay, Gilchrist, and Northern Alachua Counties).  The sponsor of HB 1235 is Representative Jessica Baker, District 17 (part of Duval County)

The verbiage “a day includes any part of a calendar day” is back in this bill.  “For the purpose of calculating a temporary residence under this paragraph, the first day that a person abides, lodges, or resides at a place is excluded and each subsequent day is counted.  A DAY INCLUDES ANY PART OF A CALENDAR DAY.  (Lines 199-202 and other places in the bill.

Any duration of travel outside the USA is reportable (previously 5 days or more).  Line “5 days” struck out.

Of course, Florida is trying to massage the wording. It is their attempt to help increase the slave labor workforce in the FLDOC while gaining votes while truly accomplishing nothing in Tallahassee.

Thank you for mentioning this Florida situation. It was positive to see ACSOL, NARSOL, Restorative Alliance, and the state groups connect a bit at the conference last October. They have seemed to have different priorities at times, and I hope the communication between the organizations continues to improve. It will produce a stronger overall movement.

Now that Ron has dropped out of his higher office aspiratiions race this time, he needs to attend to FLA again and screwing people.
