Governor Spins Back (Yet) Again

Wednesday, May 2, 2012
In his latest spin, Florida Governor Rick Scott's office is now sending a letter to constituents who contacted him in favor of HB 959 stating that the law will indeed take effect on July 1st:

Thank you for contacting Governor Rick Scott regarding legislation passed by the Florida Legislature during the 2012 regular session. The Governor appreciates your thoughts and asked that I respond on his behalf.

The Executive Office of the Governor follows all bills as they move through the legislative process. Please be assured, Governor Scott carefully considered your comments and those of other concerned citizens regarding House Bill 959, relating to State and Local Government Relations with Cuba or Syria, as he made his decision.

After consulting with all interested parties and thoroughly weighing all sides of this issue, Governor Scott signed House Bill 959 into law on May 1, 2012. The law will take effect on July 1, 2012.

Wonder what he's telling those that opposed H.B. 959.
