AAPS Members and Friends in Florida:

HB 1403 will be heard before the Florida House Health Regulation Subcommittee on Monday, April 3rd at 10:30am. On Tuesday, April 4th, at 8:30am, the Florida Senate Health Policy committee will be hearing the related Senate version SB 1580.

What do these bills aim to accomplish? Simply put, the measures will help protect physicians and other medical professionals who are courageously opposing policies, mandates, and medical interventions like COVID vaccines that they believe are harming their patients and the public.

Currently, medical professionals who voice ideas that are contrary to the dictates of bureaucrats not involved in patient care are being silenced.

These intimidating tactics must stop. HB 1403 and SB 1580 take important steps in putting protections in place to ensure physicians and other clinicians can speak out without fear of punishment by their employers, licensing and specialty boards, hospitals, and others.

How can you help?

Please take a few short moments today to send the committee members messages asking them to support HB 1403 and SB 1580.

You can get your messages on the way with just a few clicks using the following link: https://p2a.co/HKOKToS

Please consider personalizing the template messages if you have additional information about these problems you think the committee members should know.

In addition, if you are able to travel to Tallahassee on April 3 or 4 to testify in person, please let us know by replying to this email or by writing aaps@aapsonline.org.

Thank you for speaking out! Your voice makes a difference. ~AAPS
