Tallahassee, FL – Once again, Florida Citizens for a Sound Economy (FL CSE) hosted its annual FL CSE Day at the Capitol, bringing in over 250 CSE activists from across Florida to met with their legislators and discuss important issues and legislation. The two-day event was filled with guest speakers such as Secretary of State Katherine Harris, press conferences with guest speaker Tom Feeney, Speaker of the House, lobby visits, and activist training seminars. Activists also had the opportunity to watch the House of Representatives debate legislation.

“My favorite part of the day was seeing the power of CSE”- Deanna Reiter FL CSE Activist
In the weeks leading up to the event, FL CSE activists were trained and came ready to discuss a number of important public policy issues, including proposed prescription drug price-caps legislation, with their legislators.
Activists were armed with a number of grassroots educational materials on the detriments of government controlled health care such as talking points, sample letters to the editor and legislators, and CSE’s educational booklet “What is Washington Doing to your Medicare?”
Activists were also given lobby sheets that contained talking points on the detriments of prescription drug price-caps. Activists distributed these lobby sheets to each legislator after every visit.
