Legislative Committee

PopVox covers all legislative Activity in both the Congress and Senate and provides us constituents an opportunity to immediately contact our representatives and senators with emails in support or opposition to specific bills which they are currently addressing.

You can sign up for PopVox at: https://www.popvox.com/

First you need to sign up for the service as a constituent by clicking on the Constituent box

Second you then fill in your First name, Last Name, Email address and Zip Code

from that point on your enrolled in the National PopVox system


SOON TO ARRIVE State of Florida PopVox System

First you need to go to https://www.popvox.com/states/fl which will one day be the Florida PopVox

Second ;you then fill in your Email Address so that you will be notified when the Florida PopVox launches. Our Hope it will launch prior to our State's Legislative Session in January.

Background on how we found out about PopVox. At the AMHCA Leadership Conference in New Orleans, Jim Finley the AMHCA Lobbyist introduced it to the participants and especially gave me a chance to work it with him and I was very impressed. At the FMHCA Board Meeting in September the Board approved the use of PopVox as FMHCA's recognized system for Legislative Advocacy and to help our membership have a portal by which they can express their support for issues which are relevant to our profession and clients.

Recommendation: I strongly recommend each of you sign up for PopVox as well as sign up to receive notification of when the State PopVox for Florida opens. I suspect the more constituents from Florida who sign up for the State PopVox of Florida notification the interest in our state for this service might motivate them to speed up their launching of the Florida service.
