Senate Bill 1120: “Display of Flags” and Senate Bill 1122: “Monuments and Memorials” were filed on December 28, 2023 by Senator Jonathan Martin.

Senate Bill 1120 deals with displays by Governmental Entities. This bill will prohibit Governmental Entities from erecting or displaying certain flags. This will also authorize a current or retired member of the United States Armed Forces or the National Guard to use reasonable force to prevent the desecration, destruction, or removal of the United States flag or to replace such flag to a position of prominence.

“Senate bill 1120 will ensure that our taxpayer dollars will not be used to support one ideology over another and will unite Floridians on the symbols and principles that our veterans fought to protect.” – Senator Jonathan Martin

 

Senate Bill 1122 protects Florida’s historical monuments and memorials. SB 1122 protects our history from activists seeking to destroy and limit access to our storied past.  The bill places limitations and requirements regarding the relocation of historical monuments and memorials by local governments.

“The goal of this bill is to protect Florida’s unique history from local governments that are set on rewriting Florida’s history.” – Senator Jonathan Martin
