Greyson’s Law Signed Into Law

Tallahassee —

A bill by Senator Lori Berman (D-Boca Raton) and Representative Hillary Cassel (D-Dania Beach), SB 130, known as Greyson’s Law, was signed into law yesterday by Governor DeSantis.

Senator Lori Berman (D-Boca Raton) stated, “Having Greyson’s signed into law is by far one of my proudest moments in my 13 year legislative career. The impact of this legislation in protecting, and likely even, saving the lives of children will be long-lasting and far-reaching. There are so many people to thank along the way to ensure this bill was passed and signed. Ultimately, we are grateful to Gig’s Mom, Ali, for her tenacity and persistence. Greyson, this is for you.”

“Greyson’s life was cut horribly short, but his legacy will live on forever. We just honored Gigs this past Sunday at his two year ‘angel-versary’. Now that the governor signed this, it will become law on July 1 and help countless Florida families and children,” said Representative Cassel (D-Dania Beach).

Ali Kessler (Greyson’s Mother) added, “I’m so thankful that the lawmakers in Florida are seeing the need and making it possible to help other families to keep their children safe. I really wish something like this existed when I was seeking help; but if this can help even just one child, then it’s worth the fight. Greyson’s name will live on forever, and I know this had to have been for some reason., I always knew that he was destined to do great things. This is just the beginning, though there’s still a lot more reform that needs to happen in our family courts. But this is a good start.”
