The RLC along with members of other liberty organizations including the Campaign for Liberty will be converging on Tallahassee on March 22-23 with the message that government is best when it governs least.
Political consultant John Hallman of the Florida Taxpayers Union is once again in charge of our legislative briefing, securing inexpensive accommodations, setting up meetings with legislators and the governors office and to show us around the capitol.
At the top of the Liberty Day agenda is the Health Care Freedom Act. Based on model legislation crafted by the American Legislative Exchange Council, the act would permit Florida to opt out from any particular national health care plan and, most importantly, protect individual Floridians from individual mandates to buy health insurance a la RomneyCare/ObamaCare. Other issues include taxes, spending and term limits.
The tentative schedule for 2010 would be starting around noon on March 22 and finishing up in early afternoon on March 23. There will be a discounted block of rooms for us at the Baymont Inn near the Capitol (tentative, contact John for up-to-date info).
The annual grassroots lobbying trip to Tallahassee has become a signature project of the RLC that has yielded some legislative successes over the years and trained many RLCers on how to lobby effectively. For a recap of previous years, see the full story about the event at www.rlcfl.org.
