URGENT AND TIMELY
As you have heard from me, The Florida House of Representatives is considering a bill titled Transparency In Technology Act, HB 7013. This bill was first discussed by Governor DeSantis as a way to stop the deplatforming of candidates and egregious political censorship of Floridians by the Big Tech social media companies.
On Monday March 15, 2021, I testified in front of the Florida House Appropriations Committee at the Florida State Capitol in Tallahassee to speak about House Bill 7013, titled “Transparency In Technology Act”.
If this legislation is crafted effectively, if it passes in the Florida House and Senate, and then gets signed by the Governor, it would help put an end to Big Tech Censorship and deplatforming in Florida. The bill was first proposed by Governor Ron DeSantis in February, with several members of the FL state legislature standing with him. When he announced the legislation, Governor DeSantis said, “Big Tech has come to look more like big brother with each passing day.”
It is critically important that these committee members hear your voices in support of this bill, Transparency in Technology Act, HB 7013!
If you’ve been a victim of cancel culture by Big Tech, now is the time to tell your story to these committee members. They have the authority and the duty to correct the injustice and protect your 1st Ammendment rights. However, remember their time is limited because they are handling hundreds of calls. So, try to be concise while stressing that this bill must be addressed!
The members below are both Republican and Democrat. This is a bipartisan bill but some may not react positively if your discussion is against their party. We have listed their party affiliation below (R) or (D) so please be mindful. The goal here is to get a substantive bill to Governor DeSantis’s desk so he can sign it into law.
We only have a few weeks left in the legislative session and time is of the essence.
Please let me know which offices you spoke with and if they gave you feedback!
Thank you for supporting this effort!
