The Florida Legislature is back to its old tricks. Two destructive bills are being rushed through by Gov. Rick Scott and his cronies in the Legislature in an attempt to trample on every Floridian's right to know where their hard earned tax dollars are going.
SB 2036 and 2038 allow your state government to privatize any service without study or regard to costs, effectiveness, or performance. This could mean a delay of as much as two years before we even know if vendors are doing the jobs they're being paid to do. This would lay the groundwork for a whole sale giveaway of our tax dollars to the same big out-of-state special interests who gave huge campaign contributions to politicians in the Legislature and their allies.
