Schools, health care, Amendment 1 and FL legislature

Progress Florida reports:

Here are just a few of the most outrageous bills and fights we will have to contend with in the fast approaching (Florida) legislative session:

1. Politicizing our public schools: Republicans have filed legislation in both the house and senate to force all 8th and 11th grade students to watch “America: Imagine the World Without Her," a right-wing propaganda film by the Heritage Foundation’s Dinesh D'Souza.

2. Blocking access to health care: Women's access to health care is again under attack with the filing of House Bill 247, which would institute an all-out ban on abortion in Florida with no exceptions for survivors of rape or incest.

3. Sacrificing natural Florida to Big Polluters: Floridians overwhelmingly approved Amendment 1, but now polluters masquerading as conservation groups are trying to hijack implementation of the law and redirect funding away from protecting endangered species and conserving natural treasures.
