AARP Florida notifies legislators of bills to be tracked

Tallahassee, Fla. -- To help educate older Floridians on how your state legislators are voting, AARP Florida will be working in 2013 to make information on lawmakers’ votes easier and quicker to find.  AARP will be tracking votes on key issues including a ban on texting while driving, curbing annuities fraud, cracking down utility companies' extra fees for nuclear power plants that may never be built, and expanding affordable health-care coverage to uninsured Floridians of modest means.

During the legislative session, AARP will alert legislators that certain proposals will be considered key votes for the purposes of the voting-record project. Because issues sometimes change or are defeated in legislative committees, AARP may track the action in committees and on the floor of each legislative chamber.

Legislation to be tracked includes these bills.  Additional bills will be added durign the 2013 legislative session:
