The Florida House is actively considering HB 1069.
Florida Citizens Alliance supports the goal of the bill. However, the most recent committee substitute states that parents have the right to read materials at School Board meetings but leaves out residents without kids in the school system. It also is restricting residents from appeals to the Commissioner. This language will allow school Boards to restrict residents/taxpayers from their first amendment right to free speech and redress of grievances.
FLCA believes this opens up the bill to be challenged at the federal court level.
Please send this petition and call Speaker Renner, demanding that both parents and taxpayers have the same rights in the objection process. The number for his office is (850) 717-5019.
