Governor DeSantis Protects Florida From Radical ESG Policies, Signs HB 3 into Law

Press Releases · May 2, 2023

WASHINGTON – Heritage Action, a conservative grassroots organization with two million grassroots activists, including thousands of Floridians, released the following statement from Executive Director Jessica Anderson commending the Florida Legislature and Governor DeSantis for passing and enacting HB 3.

“Once again, Florida is on the forefront of the fight against the Left’s radical ESG agenda. By passing and enacting HB 3, Florida is protecting its citizens and state interests by ensuring asset managers are upholding their fiduciary duties and making investment decisions based solely on financial factors. HB 3 solidifies the Sunshine State’s leadership to protect citizens’ pensions and retirement funds from being weaponized against their financial interests and deeply held values.

Heritage Action commends House Speaker Paul Renner, Representative Bob Rommel, and Governor DeSantis for passing and enacting HB 3, which will be consequential in the ongoing efforts to defeat Left-wing ESG standards. We look forward to other states across the country enacting legislation to protect citizens’ financial interests and key state industries.”
