Come join us on Wednesday June 3, 2020 at 7:00 PM as we discuss Government Overreach w/ State Rep. Anthony Sabatini who represents House District 32 which is in Lake County, FL., West of Orlando.
State Rep. Sabatini is one of the youngest Representatives at just 31 years old. He is an officer in the Florida Army National Guard and earned his bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and History from the University of Florida in 2012 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Florida Levin College of Law in 2017.
Sabatini was elected to the Eustis City Commission in 2016 and resigned from the office on April 30, 2018 to focus his attention on his Florida House campaign.
In 2019, Sabatini sponsored HB 829 and HB 7101 both of these bills passed through the Florida House of Representatives and Florida Senate and were placed on the desk of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
HB 829 Attorney Fees & Costs, imposes an award of attorneys fees, costs, and damages in civil actions against local governments when individuals and organizations have to bring lawsuits against municipalities and counties for violating preemption laws.
HB 7101 relates to Epidiolex, which is a prescription cannabidoil, a psychoactive compound derived from the cannabis plant and is used to treat seizures. The bill classifies Epidiolex as a Schedule V controlled substance, mirroring federal law. The Schedule V classification reflects the substance’s newly approved medical use. Rescheduling Epidiolex into Schedule V prevents an interruption in the supply of the drug to Florida Patients.
