Conversation on Choice – Pat DeWitt, Director for Public Policy, AAUW FL
At the AAUW-FL State Convention of 2016, then-Representative Lori Berman appeared as a member of a panel on pay equity along with Lilly Ledbetter and Lois Frankel. We asked Berman if she would be willing to work with AAUW on an Equal Pay bill for Florida. Berman’s office, including her legislative aide Abby Ross, worked with AAUW’s State Public Policy Analyst, Kate Nielson, during the summer of 2016 to draft a bill. The Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Protection Act bill was filed in the 2017 Florida legislative session and re-edited and filed for the 2018 session. Even though, despite much effort, press conferences, and rallies in Tallahassee, the bill was never heard in committee, I am proposing a resolution to thank Lori Berman and Abby Ross for their efforts to improve women’s pay equity in Florida. It is appropriate at this time because Berman reached her term limit in the Florida House and is now Senator Lori Berman from District 31 in southeast Florida.
