Florida Democrats Chair Commends Amendment 4 Ruling

Posted

Following the ruling from Judge Robert Hinkle late Friday on Amendment 4 issuing a temporary injunction against SB7066, Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo issued the following statement:

"This is a victory for all voters — who overwhelmingly voted to give returning citizens their rights back. SB7066 is a poll tax and a blatant attempt by Republicans to suppress the vote. What is clear — this law is unconstitutional and the Florida Legislature has the responsibility to fix it immediately."
