AARP Florida Releases 5th Annual Voting Record

FL-Legislature-2016-Voting

Finding out how your state legislators voted in the 2016 Legislature just got easier with the release of AARP Florida’s fifth annual Legislative Voting Record.

AARP Florida’s 2016 voting record report contains detailed, vote-by-vote information on assisted living facility reform, guardianship proceedings, utilities regulation, and other important issues.

During the 2016 session, AARP alerted legislators that AARP would consider their votes on certain proposals to be key votes for the 2016 voting record. And because key legislative decisions often occur during the long process of legislative consideration of a bill, the voting record tracks legislative committees’ actions and final House and Senate votes.

“In order to hold your state House or Senate member accountable, you need to know how they voted on key issues,” AARP Florida State Director Jeff Johnson said. “AARP Florida’s Legislative Voting Record makes it easy for voters to track legislators’ decisions on key issues that matter most to them.”

From the time a bill was selected for the 2016 voting record AARP Florida has informed legislators that it would track the members’ votes at every stage of the legislative process.
