Miami, FL—SEIU Florida President Monica Russo issued the following statement in response to the Florida House passing HB 7099:

"It’s a crime and a shame that all of the Republicans and some Democrats in the Florida House of Representatives voted to support another billion-dollar handout to corporations paid for by Florida’s workers. They are picking the pockets of hard working Floridians, and we cannot stand idly by while the Republican-led Legislature pushes an agenda that benefits profitable corporations rather than focusing on the needs of everyday Floridians. We applaud those House Democrats who did their job today by standing up for hard working Floridians and voting no on this bill.”
