Florida Senator Rudy Garcia: "No Time" to Fight Discrimination

Florida's LGBT non-discrimination bill (Senate bill 2012) deserves a hearing so that the thousands of families out there can be protected from discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Senator Rudy Garcia Chair of the Commerce Committee is claiming there is "no time" to bring the bill to the floor this legislative season, citing a need to focus on the economy.

Please tell Senator Garcia that while the economic downturn must be a focus of the legislature, the non-discrimination bill deserves some time to be heard as well.

Sending email to an out of state legislator is very much a waste of time.

That's not very surprising, there's never any time to fight discrimination I guess.

anon- I wouldn't call it a waste of time, it's not as strong when it's not from the district but still, also we are predominantly encouraging florida readers to contact.
