FL Dems Statement on Senate Committee Vote on Elections Reform Bill

Posted

Tallahassee, FL – The Florida Democratic Party today released the following statement in response to the Senate Ethics and Elections Committee vote on SB600 which Democrats unanimously opposed.

STATEMENT FROM FL DEMS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR SCOTT ARCENEAUX:

"Florida Republicans have once again signaled to the people of Florida that they are unwilling to fix the elections mess they have created. Whether it was the passage of the voter suppression law or Rick Scott's refusal to extend the voting hours, the Florida GOP have made a mockery of our elections system. Today they refused to fully fix the problems they created with commonsense reforms to ensure we never faced the disastrous 2012 elections again. This half-hearted attempt by Republicans to address elections reforms is nothing short of shameful and comes at the expense of Floridian's fundamental right to participate in the democratic process."
