I am interested in information about starting a public

I am interested in information about starting a public initiative in Florida to end the Florida Bear Hunt. Although the majority of citizens were against the first hunt in over 20 years, we were not heard. I know hunting has weird protections by law. Is it possible to get this on a Florida ballot? I know other states have ended part of the cruelty (baiting, bow and arrow hunting, etc..) in this way. Please advise on my options. Also advise on first steps of action. Thank you.

There is a law called the Assistive Technology Act of 2004.

There is a law called the Assistive Technology Act of 2004. It states that states are to "ensure individuals with disabilities reap the benefits of the technological revolution to participate fully in life in their communities." It goes on to define "services" as researching, finding, and acquiring this technology for individuals. However, I have not seen any evidence that this law is being enforced or implemented. The Department of Rehabilitation is supposed to enforce it but when I called I was referred to this non-profit website that gave information about the law but nothing else. As far as I could see the only "technology" they will help me acquire is a used walker. Isn't this a disability/civil rights violation if the law isn't being enforced?

QUESTION ABOUT INCLUDING MANY NAMES IN A PIECE OF LEGISLATION My

QUESTION ABOUT INCLUDING MANY NAMES IN A PIECE OF LEGISLATIONMy organization is about to launch a "grass roots" lobbying campaign at the federal level. Let's say for the sake of discussion that we are successful and the House of Representatives and Senate begin drafting the legislation. We would like to have the names of all our contributors and staffers included in the actual bill. The number could total in the tens of thousands.My question is:If Congress was agreeable to putting the names in the bill in the first place, under the rules would they be able to include these names?Put another way: is there any specific rule that would preclude the inclusion of these names even though the House/Senate wanted them?

I need an expert in California and New York to help me with

I need an expert in California and New York to help me with my unemployment benefits situation. I was working in California until Sept 2013 and applied for my benefits there. I tried to look for work for the past 6 mths or so and was unable to find any work commensurate with my skills. And so I have been thinking to move back to NY which was my home originally.Meanwhile while in LA, I received a letter from the CA Unemployment Dept to say that "You have received all the benefits payable on your claim and no extended benefits are available to you. If unemployed, you may file a new claim or call your unemployment insurance office 1-5 days before 9/13/14. If you file as intructed and are otherwise eligible, you may receive waiting period credit for the week ending 9/13/14".So I did apply again as per the instructions and I recently received a letter to say "We are unable to process your application because benefits are exhausted on a claim that has not yet expired. Please contact the department 1-5 days prior to 9/13/14 to determine if you are eligible for a later claim"So I have two qsts - what does the above letter mean - if my claim has not yet expired, how can my benefits be exhausted? And what can I do to remedy this situation.2nd Qst - given that I have decided to move back to NY, can I file a sucessful claim in NY? How does the above letter from the CA Unemployment play into my NY Unemployment? Am I even eligible to file for a sucessful claim in NY? And if I am eligible to apply, how do I move my case from CA to NY and what are the next steps.Thank you.

Instructions to Tender Payment Notice to Agent is Notice

Instructions to Tender PaymentNotice to Agent is Notice to Principal. Notice to Principal is Notice to AgentSilence is Acquiescence, Agreement, and DishonorNOTICE: This document is not intended to threaten, harass, hinder or obstruct any lawful operations.It is for the purpose of obtaining lawful and legal remedy as is provided by law and tendered with honorable intent.RE: Account #To whom it may concern: Enclosed find Promissory Note No.: XXXXXX made out to_________________ to discharge the above referenced account for settlement and closure.This attached Negotiable Instrument is presented under the authority of House Joint Resolution 192, Public Law 73-10, UCC 3-104(c), Spencer v. Sterling Bank, 63 Cal Ap. 4th 1055 (1998), Guaranty Trust Co. Of NY v. Henwood et al, 307 U.S. 247 (FN3), the Within Negotiable Instruments, Vol. III (including 2006 Supplement) on the Undersigned's UCC Contract Trust Account. "The entire taxing and monetary systems are hereby placed under the U.C.C." (Uniform Commercial Code) - The Federal Tax Lien Act of 1966. Please send receipt for discharge to the address above in care of my notary public/attesting witness within 3 days of deposit. As everyone should know lawful money was removed from our economy by congress in 1933 by HJR 192 (House Joint Resolution) and replaced with negotiable instruments. These negotiable instruments are considered as legal tender on the same par and category as federal reserve notes. They represent a mortgage on all the homes and personal property of all the American people. This mortgage was placed without proper legal authorization by congress and the supreme court required that a remedy had to be given to the American people who were principals and sureties for the national debt. This remedy is to discharge debt for the people who demanded it. We the People were made private bankers according to the law with the authority to issue notes to discharge lawful debts. This must remain in effect until lawful money and the property is returned to We the People without any encumbrances. HJR 192: “Now, there-fore be it. Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That (a) every provision contained in or made with respect to any obligation which purports to give the obligee a right to require payment in gold or a particular kind of coin or currency, or in an amount in money of the United States measured thereby, is declared to be against public policy; and no such provision shall be contained in or made with respect to any obligation hereafter incurred. Every obligation, heretofore or hereafter incurred, whether or not any such provision is contained therein or made with respect thereto, shall be discharged upon payment, dollar for dollar, in any coin or currency which at the time of payment is legal tender for public and private debts.”LEGAL TENDER DEFINED Legal tender under the Uniform Commercial Code (U.C.C.), Section 1-201(24) (Official Comment); “The referenced Official Comment notes that the definition of money is not limited to legal tender under the U.C.C. The test adopted is that of sanction of government, whether by authorization before issue or adoption afterward, which recognizes the circulating medium as a part of the official currency of that government. The narrow view that money is limited to legal tender is rejected.”
