Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee to consider American Laws for American Courts bill which would prohibit Sharia and other foreign laws. 

This email was deactivated after the subcommittee approved this legislation.

The Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee will consider HB 903 titled Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases on Wednesday, March 18, 2014 at 9:00 am. 

This legislation, commonly known as “American Laws for American Courts”, would prohibit Florida courts from considering certain provisions of foreign laws, including Islamic Sharia law, if such provisions are inconsistent with the Florida and United States of America Constitutions.

If Florida courts accept provisions of Islamic Sharia law or other foreign laws or legal codes which are inconsistent with American laws it will undermine public policies enacted by our representative form of government and change our value system.

Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases: Defines "foreign law, legal code, or system"; specifies public policy on application of foreign law, legal code, or system in proceedings relating to dissolution of marriage, support, time-sharing, UCCJEA, & UIFSA; provides that certain decisions rendered under such laws, codes, or systems are void; provides that certain contracts & contract provisions are void; provides for construction of waiver by natural person of person's fundamental liberties, rights, & privileges guaranteed by state or federal constitutions; provides that claims of forum non conveniens or related claims must be denied; provides that act doesn't require or authorize court to adjudicate, or prohibit any religious organization from adjudicating, ecclesiastical matters in violation of specified constitutional provisions or to conflict with any federal treaty or other international agreement to which U.S. is party to specified extent.  Full text of HB 903. 

Florida Family Association has prepared an email for you to send urging the thirteen members of the Florida House Civil Justice Subcommittee to vote for HB 903 - Application of Foreign Law in Certain Cases.
