Venezuelans are a proud people with a rich heritage and beautiful country, but unfortunately their government has squandered their natural resources, committed countless human rights abuses, and left the country in ruin. Despite countless protests from its citizens who hope for freedom from the oppressive rule they live under today, the Venezuelan regime remains firmly entrenched in power.
Every dollar spent in Venezuela, whether intended or not, helps prop up the current tyrannical regime and promulgate its oppressive policies. HB 359 by Speaker pro tempore Nuñez and State Representative Manny Diaz, requires the State Board of Administration (SBA) to divest any investment in stocks, securities, or other obligations of any institution or company doing business with the illegitimate communist government of Venezuela.
Let’s make sure Governor Scott signs HB 359 into law!
