Lights kerfuffle will come to Tallahassee with no orange at previous Capitol

In the wake of LGBTQ+ local community outrage above the turning off of Pride Thirty day period rainbow lighting on bridges in Jacksonville and Sarasota, gun management advocates now say the state blocked lighting the Historic Capitol making in orange to honor gun violence victims. 

The Department of Management Products and services (DMS), which manages condition buildings and studies to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, ignored a request for orange lights at the Capitol on Countrywide Gun Violence Consciousness Working day, which was previous Friday.  

Information of that inaction arrived just after the Division of Transportation, also beneath DeSantis, ordered rainbow lighting shut off this 7 days on Jacksonville’s Acosta bridge since there was no “allow” that authorized this sort of lighting. It also denied a request by Sarasota officials to light-weight the Ringling Bridge in rainbow colours.
