Email my Florida legislator on April 2-4 to stop the Infant Death Bill

This pledge closed over 4 years ago

How this will help

The Infant Death Bill, HB83 will hit the House Floor during the afternoon session in the Florida House tomorrow, April 2, 2013.  This will be the second reading of the bill on the floor (all bills must be read three times on the floor before a vote is called). Its companion bill, SB56, will be presented in the afternoon session of the Florida Senate on Thursday, April 4, 2013. This session begins at 2 pm.  The Florida SIDS Alliance opposes this bill.

We plan to be present in the gallery for the third reading in the Senate.

Although we will not be permitted to speak, we are hoping that our presence will be felt. If you are planning to join us on the Senate Floor that day, please let us know by calling 800-SIDS-FLA, or by emailing us at [email protected].  We will have directions and instructions for those that plan to attend.

Our presence will make a larger impact if we are supported prior to this by our constituents emailing and calling every single Senator and Representative, and urging their family and friends to do so.  Even if you do not belong to their district, you can make your voice heard.

Below are links to each of the press releases we have sent out, as well as a list of every Senator and Representative with their District and Tallahassee phone numbers and their email addresses. You can copy and paste the email addresses into your mail program.  Please share this with as many as you can. We need your help to protect Florida Families.
