The sixty-day Florida Legislative Session will begin March 7th, 2023. While committee weeks have been underway following the November election, we’re preparing now with the release of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida 2023 Legislative Policy Position Paper. We will lobby Senators and Representatives to align their votes with these positions as we move through session, and we encourage you to join us in this pursuit for Liberty by making your positions known to your legislators as well.


The Republican Liberty Caucus is a national grassroots organization working to advance the principles of individual rights, limited government, free markets, and personal freedom and responsibility.

Regarding Campaign Finance Reform: It is time to put an end to the “legal laundering” of millions of dollars in special interest campaign contributions through political committees and electioneering communications organizations. We support legislation that would prohibit these transfers or contributions between PCs, ECOs, political parties and affiliated party committees.

Regarding the Second Amendment: Infringements on the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms will not prevent criminals or sick and twisted individuals from manifesting criminal or evil intent. It will on the other hand make the lawful community less safe and less able to defend itself.

Regarding Term Limits: Eight years is enough! We support eight-year term limits for every office at every level of government. We will also support legislation being proposed by Recall Florida that would provide non-charter counties with the same election recall abilities as charter counties.

Regarding Criminal Justice Reform: The Florida legislature has made progress on this issue and should continue to seek further reforms recommended in the Crime and Justice Institute review. Our fourth amendment rights to privacy are being abused in many ways and with alarming frequency. We call on the legislature to amend the statute to require a warrant in order for law enforcement to surveil crowds of any size that gather on private property!

Regarding Education: We strongly support school choice programs that empower parents to have more control over the kind of education that works best for their child. We support legislation providing for partisan school board elections, as well as legislation giving voters the ability to recall school board members and elected Superintendents.

Regarding Spending and Taxation: The budget has grown by nearly twenty percent in two years and continues to grow faster than what would be required to keep up with population growth and inflation. We support an exhaustive budget review process to find and eliminate duplicative programs, unnecessary programs, and wasteful spending practices. Under no circumstances would we support increased taxation as a means to eliminate any future deficits should they arise.

Regarding Government Regulation: We support free market solutions to increase access and lower costs for consumers. This applies to health care, occupational licensing, government subsidy of the newspaper industry and Florida’s three tier system of regulation over the production, distribution, and sale of alcoholic beverages.
