ACT FOR AMERICA ACHIEVES ANOTHER VICTORY!

FLORIDA APPLICATION OF FOREIGN LAW IN COURTS BILL BECOMES LAW



This past Monday, May 12th, Florida Governor Rick Scott signed SB 386, the “Application of Foreign Law in Courts” bill into law. It’s been a long haul – four years to be exact – but the continued pressure by our grassroots activists has resulted in yet another important legislative win. Thank you!

The new law will help protect Floridians from foreign law that is inconsistent with American values, such as Islamic sharia law.

This issue is one of our top priorities, and ACT! for America has been aggressively working similar legislation in states all across the nation.

As a result of our efforts, Florida joins eight other states that have a law on the books restricting foreign laws in state courts. The others are:

Alabama
Arizona
Kansas
Louisiana
North Carolina
Oklahoma
Tennessee
Washington


So again, thank you. As our most recent win in Florida demonstrates, sometimes victories take time, but you can be sure that if we continue to work together, more achievements are up ahead.

Together we ARE making a difference.
