2016 Pro-Family Days at the Capitol
The Hispanic Israel Leadership Coalition will be co-hosting the Tallahassee 2016 Pro-Family Days at the Capitol with Florida Family Policy Council and Israel Allies Foundation from January 25 -26, 2016. We are supporting Pro-Israel and Pro-Family Legislation, we will be praying at the Capitol Steps for the State of Florida, for our Nation and for our Governmental Leaders. On January 26, 2016, we will be hosting a Legislative Prayer Breakfast with Senate President Designate, Joe Negron and with Speaker Designate of the House and with other Florida Senators and Representatives.
HILC will educate our Representatives and Senators on several Pro-Life, Pro-Marriage and Religious Liberties Bills and we will be discussing our support for Israel through SB 86/HB 527: Relating to Scrutinized Companies which is sponsored by Sen Negron (R); Rep Workman(R). This Bill prohibits state and local government entities from investing in or awarding contracts to companies that boycott Israel. This Bill requires State Board of Administration (SBA) to create “Scrutinized Companies that Boycott Israel List” and update it quarterly. Companies listed would be notified and provided 90 days to clarify their position regarding Israel.
