Florida FAMM wants you to help start something new - 2014!

Greg Newburn, FAMM Florida Project Director wants us to help start something new. Just follow these simple directions, now, to help yourself to better place:

Hello Florida FAMM!

I hope each of you had a nice holiday! We’re back with big news right out of the gate in 2014, and we need your help! On Wednesday, January 8, the Senate Criminal Justice Committee will consider SB 448, which aims to prevent injustices under 10-20-Life that have become commonplace in our state. You can see that bill here.

The same committee will also consider SB 360, which reforms Florida’s drug trafficking sentencing laws. That bill completely eliminates the mandatory minimum for “trafficking” in less than 14 grams of prescription painkillers, and reforms the sentences associated with various weights. You can see that bill here. FAMM’s summary of the bill is here.

These are hugely important bills in the fight to reform Florida’s sentencing laws, and we need your help to pass them! Please email the members of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee TODAY and let them know you support SB 448 and SB 360. Here are the email addresses for the members of the committee. (Feel free to cut and paste all of them into one email.)

evers.greg.web@flsenate.gov,
smith.chris.web@flsenate.gov,
altman.thad.web@flsenate.gov,
bradley.rob.web@flsenate.gov,
dean.charles.web@flsenate.gov,
gibson.audrey.web@flsenate.gov,
simmons.david.web@flsenate.gov

In the subject line of the email, write “SUPPORT SB 360 AND SB 448!”

In the body of the email, write simply:

Senators,

I’m writing to ask for your support of SB 360 and SB 448 in the Criminal Justice Committee tomorrow.

Sincerely,

(YOUR NAME)

(YOUR TOWN)

That’s all you need to write! Thank you! Together we can get this done!

Here is the message and the model again so please Do It Now:

Hello Florida FAMM!

Tomorrow is the first hearing on both our drug and gun sentencing bills in the Florida Senate. Have you emailed the members of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee?? If not, please do!

There is a widespread myth - promoted gleefully by the special interests that benefit from mandatory minimums - that the only thing voters want from our criminal justice system is more prisons and longer sentences. Let your lawmakers know this isn’t true! They need to know we’re out there, so please email them and tell them to support SB 360 and SB 448 tomorrow!

Once again, here are the email addresses for the Senators on the committee. Cut and paste them into your email.

evers.greg.web@flsenate.gov,
smith.chris.web@flsenate.gov,
altman.thad.web@flsenate.gov,
bradley.rob.web@flsenate.gov,
dean.charles.web@flsenate.gov,
gibson.audrey.web@flsenate.gov,
simmons.david.web@flsenate.gov

In the subject line, write:

“SUPPORT SB 360 AND SB 448!”

In the body of the email, write simply:

Senators,

I’m writing to ask for your support of SB 360 and SB 448 in the Criminal Justice Committee tomorrow.

Sincerely,

(YOUR NAME)

(YOUR TOWN)

Take three minutes today and send this email. Let them know we’re out there and we want reform! Thank you!
