Allow small Craft Breweries to Self-Distribute Support SB 554

Craft Breweries are prohibited by law (Three-Tier System) from distributing directly to retailers and are required to sell their beer to distributors, who then sell to retailers. Using a distributor can be an efficient way to get products into the marketplace — when it is voluntary. But mandatory wholesaling can prevent other competitive business models from emerging, especially small breweries.

Hold Judges Accountable-Support HJR 1

Currently, the Florida Supreme Court justices and Appellate Court judges are appointed by the Governor and only face a merit retention system where citizens vote yes or no on the judge every six years. This merit retention system has failed to hold judges accountable and no judge has ever been ousted in a merit retention vote. Because judges know once appointed, they will never be voted out in a merit retention vote, they are free to push their political agenda in irreversible ways that affect the everyday lives of Floridians.
