Parental Rights are threatened again this week, and the legalization of marijuana is yet again in committee. The hearing for both bills is on Tuesday morning.

Ask your legislator to: 

We've made the process super easy for you; read below to be informed and to take action.

Parental Rights

Yes, you read that right. HB 400 would allow dependents on an insurance policy to receive "sensitive health care services" without the policyholder being alerted.
Last year, a similar bill was introduced that never passed; the main difference was that it only applied to dependents between ages 18-26.
HB 400 clearly extends this practice to minor dependents.
Look at the "sensitive health care services" that your child would be able to receive without your knowledge.
I'm sure you're as outraged by that list as I am. Wouldn't you want to be notified if your child began taking experimental drugs that disrupt the natural puberty process, using your insurance coverage?
It's important to realize that this is just one of many policies, proposed and passed, that would give minors more easy access to these "sensitive services." Follow the trend:

Step 1: Increase the number of school-based health centers.

Step 2: Allow advanced practice registered nurses, many of whom are employed in these centers, to prescribe abortion pills. 

Step 3: Prevent policyholders -- parents -- from being notified when dependents receive these treatments. 

Do you see how the state is trying to remove you, the parent, as the barrier to your children having easy access to dangerous, life-altering medical decisions?
HB 400 is being heard in the House Economic Development/Banking/Insurance & Commerce committee THIS Tuesday at 11am. Click here to send your comment to the committee today, urging them to vote NO on HB 400.

This committee hearing is also in person; I hope you'll also consider being present for the hearing and giving a 2-minute testimony.

Human Flourishing

Yes, this bill keeps coming back.

To recap: the original bill to legalize recreational marijuana, HB 150, was blocked in the House. But there are now two new bills that would essentially do the same thing: HB 371 and HB 372 w/ HA 1

In our last update, HB 371 was being heard in committee. What happened?

Committee hearings follow a consistent process for each bill:

1. The bill sponsor explains the bill, sometimes with the help of expert testimony.
2. Committee members ask questions or give comments. 
3. Finally, and most importantly, the public is given the opportunity to comment.

When HB 371 was heard, this protocol was blatantly ignored. Despite protest from Rep. Briggs King, the comment time for both the committee and the public was completely skipped, and the bill was brought straight to a vote. 

This blatant disregard for procedure was "rectified" by restarting the process. The bill is now back in committee, and will be heard at 11am on Tuesday.

SB 232, the bill that would have required 10th and 12th graders to be assessed on basic US History and the rights and responsibilities of citizenship, failed in committee. This solid piece of legislation was disregarded as unnecessary.

Religious Freedom

SB 144 essentially defines a "hate crime" as a crime motivated by a "belief or perception" about the victim's characteristics. We explained in an earlier update how this subtle bill exposes a significant worldview problem.

A new amendment was proposed that removes threats from the criteria for whether desecration has occurred. Desecration in this bill applies to places of worship, burial places, schools, and monuments (this amendment also removes private property from this list).

Knowing this Assembly's history of proposing policies that elevate the protection of sexual orientation and gender identity above religious liberty, it is important to ask pointed questions and think critically through the implications of this bill.

I encourage you to listen to the discussion when it comes up in committee. Listen to hear the motivation behind this bill and its amendment.

Reminders ...

Remember to take action on these two bills ASAP!

While Americans Can’t Afford Gas, Biden Slashes Drilling



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

It’s not Putin’s price hike, it’s Biden’s. And he insists on reminding us of that every few days.

The Biden administration on Monday reversed a Trump administration plan that would have allowed the government to lease more than two-thirds of the country’s largest swath of public land to oil and gas drilling.

The Bureau of Land Management’s decision will shrink the amount of land available for lease in the National Petroleum Reserve in Alaska…

The decision returns to an Obama administration plan that allows fossil fuel extraction in up to 52% of the reserve, compared to the Trump administration’s effort to open up 82% of the land to drilling.

Nationally gas prices continue to rise, despite increased production, hitting an average of $4.13. Of course, where I live, people would wait on line for an hour to get $4.13 gas and consider $5.13 a mouthwatering bargain.

But that’s what happens when you put enviros in charge of a city, a state, or a country.

While Biden and his lackeys advise Americans to buy $55,000 electric cars, they fly jet planes everywhere and then keep blocking efforts to make America energy independent.

Florida Governor DeSantis Says He’ll Fight Biden’s ‘Ministry of Truth’



republished below in full unedited for informational, educational & research purposes:

Dear George Orwell:

Just a note to thank you for your book 1984 and its description of how the government can control unhealthy and wrongheaded speech. We are going to follow your suggestions and hope we get the same result with our very own Ministry of Truth as you got with yours.


Joseph Robinette Biden

President, United States

George Orwell proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that anything a human being can imagine — no matter how far-fetched or silly — can someday come true. All that’s necessary is for “good men to do nothing.”

In the case of Joe Biden’s proposed “disinformation office” in the Department of Homeland Security, it’s more a question of bad men having the power to do bad things while good men are locked out, pounding on the door to get in.

As Biden knew it would, his disinformation office has generated widespread and sometimes hysterical, sometimes over-the-top opposition by the right. And it’s also become part of the 2024 presidential campaign — also, as Biden knew it would.

This is an issue that illustrates the divide in American politics more clearly than most. The left wants a monopoly on defining “hate speech” and wants to be the arbiter of political discourse.

Quite simply, that can’t be allowed to happen. And Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis wants to be on the front lines of the battle.

“They want to be able to put out false narratives without people being able to speak out and fight back,” DeSantis said. “But we’re not going to let Biden get away with this one, so we will be fighting back.”

DeSantis is the latest conservative to slam the Department of Homeland Security’s new “Disinformation Governance Board”, which has come under intense scrutiny since it was first revealed Wednesday.

The hashtag “Ministry of Truth” was trending on Twitter Thursday as critics compared the new board to George Orwell’s “1984” novel.

Biden’s “disinformation” board is actually more insidious than Orwell’s fictional ministry. Orwell’s ministry of truth had a well-defined blueprint to follow. Biden’s disinformation bureau is going to end up using its powers subjectively.

“You cannot have a Ministry of Truth in this country,” DeSantis said.

“We believe it’s essential that individual Floridians and Americans are able to speak out against the false narratives trying to be jammed down our throats by this regime.”

He added: “They won’t be able to say things like Russia collusion … They want to be able to advocate for COVID lockdowns. They want to be able to be an advocate for school closures … but then when you speak out they want to stifle dissent.”

Just what this Disinformation Governance Board will do is unclear. Homeland Security Secretary Mayorkas said at the hearing announcing the board, “The goal is to bring the resources of (DHS) together to address this threat.” What “threat” is that?

The threat of “disinformation” in minority communities ahead of the 2022 midterms.

That’s a relief. Does that mean that every time Biden compares Republican efforts at election integrity to Jim Crow that his tweet will be deleted and his account suspended?

That actually might be a valuable service. Alas, we all know that’s not to be.

The facts are clear: Democrats are losing millions of minority votes because of GOP messaging. They must suppress Republican messaging or they will become a minority party for the next generation.

And if it takes the creation of a Ministry of Truth to accomplish their goal, so be it.
