Statement on Gov. Scott signing HB 7069

Thu, 06/15/2017 - 4:13pm

"Today, Gov. Rick Scott ignored thousands of parents, teachers and community leaders who have spoken out against this travesty of a bill and embraced a secret and unaccountable process to deal an underhanded sucker punch to public education in our state."

Dangerously close to law

Wed, 06/14/2017 - 11:31am

The health care plan being assembled in the Senate is undoubtedly a travesty. What’s more - it’s an affront to representative democracy.

A sucker punch to Florida's public schools

Fri, 06/09/2017 - 4:13pm

Instead of being given a helping hand, Florida’s public schools are being dealt a big sucker punch. HB 7069, if signed by Gov. Scott, would devastate public schools, shortchange teachers, and finance a huge giveaway to corporate charter school chains.

Veto this "piece of junk"

Tue, 05/16/2017 - 9:37am

It cuts funding for public schools, devastates health care, and ignores the will of the voters on the environment. It’s Florida’s proposed state budget, it’s an absolute disgrace, and Gov. Scott needs to veto it.

Thu, 05/04/2017 - 3:48pm

"Trumpcare will increase health care costs, reduce quality of care, strip coverage from an estimated 24 million Americans and gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Adding insult to injury, Trumpcare would exempt Members of Congress from the law."
