Update: HB 7123 Still Threatens to Undo Voter Approved

Local Tax Levy for Safer Schools


Members of the Florida House of Representatives passed HB 7123 last night with a vote of 69 to 44 in favor of the bill. The bill still included language that would force Florida school districts to share, retroactively, all referendum funds with charter schools. Unfortunately, no concession was made in HB 7123 before the House passed it to honor the will of the Palm Beach County voters or the ballot language they overwhelmingly approved by over 72% in November 2018.


HB 7123 now heads to the Florida Senate. Please review the information below and consider reaching out. Contact information and sample messages have been included to assist in your efforts. Please also share this information with your friends and family who feel strongly that Palm Beach County voters should get what they voted for.
