TAKE ACTION TODAY – Urge Support for Implementation of Amendment 4
As the 2017 Florida Legislative Session kicks off today, the Solar Choice coalition is urging elected leaders in Tallahassee to swiftly implement Amendment 4, the solar tax abatement proposal you played a key role in passing in the August primary with 73 percent support. As a strong solar supporter, here’s what you need to know: An Amendment 4 implementation bill – SB 90 – was introduced in December by Senator Jeff Brandes and has already passed two committees. The next steps are hearings in the Finance and Tax Subcommittee, the Appropriations committee, and then a vote before the full Senate. A straight-forward companion bill HB 1411 was introduced in the House by Senator Lori Berman this morning.
We now need you to reach out to your legislators and urge them to vote in support of both SB 90 and HB 1411. Click HERE to look up your state representative and senator, and then use the script below in a quick email and/or phone call!
Script: I am urging you to vote to pass SB 90 and its companion HB 1411 for a clean implementation of Amendment 4. Amendment 4 passed unanimously in the Legislature last session and then with 73% support of the voters in the August primary. It now needs your vote to be implemented. Thank you for listening to your constituents and supporting smart energy policy!
