Rod Keller continues to keep an eye on Scientology's sneaky front groups. He has another dispatch for us on how the church is trying to influence Florida legislatoin...

This week Florida Scientologists were flooded with requests from two front groups to contact their senators and representatives regarding a number of bills being considered to modify the Baker Act. The act allows qualified doctors, nurses and police to bring a person they believe is a danger to themselves or others for involuntary psychiatric evaluation.

As we reported in February, Scientology is lobbying the legislature against allowing advanced registered nurse practitioners to initiate a Baker Act examination. Now they have found a proposal they support - requiring examination of children to be done faster, and establishing a panel to study why so many people are given a Baker Act examination in Florida. Scientology supports any action to curtail psychiatry, and opposes any expansion.
