OPERATION PASS IT – Seeks Florida Senate approval of SB58 American Law for American Courts
OPERATION PASS IT is a major push to URGE Florida Senate Leadership with phone calls and emails requesting them to bring SB58, Application of Foreign Laws in Certain Cases, before the full Senate for a hearing and passage before the close of the current 2013 legislative session in Tallahassee.
WHY THIS IS NEEDED: SB58 HAS NOT BEEN SCHEDULED this week in Tallahassee by the Florida Senate Rules Committee. This despite House approval of this important legislation on April 18, 2013 which Gov. Rick Scott approves and would be poised to sign it into Law should the companion legislation pass the Senate.
Here are the facts:
1. The Senate Rules Committee agenda has been set.
2. SB58 has already passed three Senate committees.
3. Senate President Don Gaetz can have the bill pulled from the Rules Committee and taken to the full Senate.
You are respectfully requesting the Senate President do just that since the Rules Committee is not scheduled to meet again in the 2013 Legislative session after this week’s scheduled meeting.
WHAT YOU CAN DO: PLEASE MAKE CALLS AND SEND EMAILS TO FLORIDA SENATE LEADERS AT BOTH THEIR SENATE AND DISTRICT OFFICES URGING THEM TO BRING SB58 UP FOR A SENATE VOTE:
“PLEASE MAKE SURE SB58, APPLICATION OF FOREIGN LAW IN CERTAIN CASES, IS HEARD AND VOTED ON THE FLOOR OF THE SENATE BEFORE THIS LEGISLATIVE SESSION ENDS.”
WHY THIS LEGISLATION IS NEEDED: House Sponsor of companion BILL HB351, Rep. Larry Metz, in his message issued following approval by the Florida House on April 18, 2013 said:
This bill makes protection of fundamental constitutional rights the gold standard for deciding any request to apply foreign law. If a request to apply foreign law is denied, the parties would be free to litigate their disputes under Florida law.
