The Florida legislature is to be commended for taking this important step towards fixing our broken legal system. Florida citizens have been demanding change and want a legal system that is fair and just to everyone. This vote shows that our elected officials are listening. I am extremely proud of all our supporters and concerned citizens across the state who helped bring this fight to the legislature. You made a difference.
The Florida legislature has the opportunity to fix our broken legal system by passing reform legislation to stop abusive lawsuits and inject personal responsibility back into our courts. Florida citizens want to see fairness in our courts, not more junk lawsuits. Now is the time for citizens to urge their elected officials to take action.
Our legislators have an opportunity to fix one of the main problems that encourages lawsuit abuse in Florida. Florida citizens want to see fairness in our courts, not lawsuits that target people based on their ability to pay instead of the extent of their responsibility. It's time for our legislators to stand up to the personal injury lawyers and restore fairness to our courts.
The vote was a vote for common sense and basic fairness. It is a victory for Florida taxpayers, working families and businesses who can all breathe a little bit easier knowing that once this legislation is signed they'll be less likely to be targeted for a lawsuit simply because they have the ability to pay.
