FL NOW and Greater Orlando NOW were represented at the Central FL Legislator Delegation held Jan 12. The delegation of legislators, both GOP and Democrat wanted to hear from the community about issues and problems. There were speakers from a lot of non-profits. We were there from 9a to 6:45p. All the legislators hung and kept extending the meeting to allow everyone to speak. Democrats were active during the meeting. Republicans not so much. Democrats stepped up to support immediate issues. Republicans did not best we could tell. FL NOW’s 2 minute time focused on abortion and affordable housing as well as no permit carry that DeSantis wants. There are rumors that DeSantis is going to call a special legislative session to place further bans on abortion even though calling a special session costs millions. Our opposition was there and were in good form even anti-vaxers. But, a lot of the presenters spoke to our issues in one way or another.
