Council on American-Islamic Relations responds to Florida anti-Shariah bill

Responding to news that state Sen. Alan Hays, R-Umatilla, has filed what one right-wing organization is dubbing an “anti-Shariah” law, Nezar Hamze, executive director of the South Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations , tells The Florida Independent that Hays’ bill could impact believers in all faiths and that its filing shows Hays is “disconnected” from his constituents and Florida’s “real problems.” # According to a state Senate summary , Hays’ law “specifies the public policy of this state in applying the choice of a foreign law, legal code, or system under certain circumstances” and that “certain decisions rendered under such laws, codes, or systems are void.” # Hamze responded to news of Hays’ legislation via email: # I see an impact on all religions regarding marriage contracts, wills, and burial rights

Denver sick leave measure overwhelmingly voted down by residents

Denver sick leave measure overwhelmingly voted down by residents

Denver’s Initiative 300 , which would have required all businesses in Denver to provide paid sick leave to employees lost big tonight, with a margin approaching 2-1. Early polls showed the sick leave measure winning, but Denver Mayor Michael Hancock and a majority of the Denver City Council urged no votes and opponents raised nearly twice the money supporters raised during a campaign that quickly became ugly. From a press release issued by opponents to the measure, Keep Denver Competitive: Thanks to the leadership of Mayor Michael Hancock, a majority of city council members, the state’s leading business and employer organizations and hundreds of small, family-owned businesses, voters understood Initiative 300 was flawed and would have hurt Denver’s smallest businesses the most.
