A bill supported by the National Rifle Association and Unified Sportsmen of Florida to help more hunters and fishermen get registered to vote passed the Florida Legislature today and is on its way to Governor Jeb Bush (R) for his signature.

HB-125 Sponsored by Representative Greg Evers (R-Milton) in the House and Senator Carey Baker (R-Eustis) in the Senate will offer people who buy resident hunting and fishing licenses three new opportunities to register to vote. 

1. People who purchase a hunting or fishing license by phone will have the opportunity to have a voter registration form mailed to them.

2.  People purchasing a hunting or fishing license online will have a link that takes them to a voter registration site.

3. People who purchase a hunting or fishing license from an agent authorized to sell hunting and fishing licenses, will be asked if they would like a voter registration application to take home and fill out and mail in later.

The bill passed the House 110-6 and passed the Senate 31-8

Similar legislation passed last year in Georgia.

Special thanks go to Senate President Tom Lee (R-Brandon) and House Speaker Allan Bense (R-Panama City) for helping move this legislation.

Thanks also go to Co-sponsors.
