JLG State Public Affairs Committee meets with lawmakers

In late March, the members of our State Public Affairs Committee (SPAC) attended the State Public Affairs Committee Winter Conference and Training in Tallahassee. After a day of workshops and hearing about important bills affecting women and children, our SPAC ladies met with Senator Keith Perry and Representative Clovis Watson to discuss bills that the Junior Leagues of Florida support.

Included in those was SB476, which specifies increasing booster car seat requirements from age 5 to age 6, championed by our own active member Becker Holland and sponsored by Senator Perry. To track that bill please visit: http://www.flsenate.gov/Session/Bill/2019/00476.
