Statement from FLA DEMS on Supreme Court Ruling Gov. Scott Overstepped His Authority
Tallahassee, FL – The Florida Democratic Party today issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling that Governor Rick Scott overstepped his authority in suspending all regulations:
Statement from Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Scott Arceneaux:
“Today, the Florida Supreme Court found that Governor Rick Scott – once again – ignored the law by exceeding his authority and overstepping the Florida Constitution in a continued effort to promote his Tea Party agenda. This is the kind of disregard for the law, and the people of Florida, that we have come to expect from this Governor and Republican Legislature.
“It’s time to stop putting politics above the interests of the people. It’s time to stop wasting taxpayer money to defend this administration’s radical agenda. But above all, it’s time to focus on getting Floridians back to work.”
