Florida legislature pulls last minute shenanigans to pass Voucher bill

On the last day of the legislative session a 141-page
voucher amendment was added to an unrelated bill that had already won approval
allowed the expansion of vouchers to pass.
If the democrats had been in power and done something
similar with gun control, or welfare then there would be outrage in the
the Tampa Times: Sen. Dwight Bullard raised concerns about the way the
policy had been brought to the Senate floor. “The idea of a last-day
amendment that brings up the content of a [seperate] bill is problematic,”
said Bullard, D-Miami. Bullard opposed the new language, saying students who
participate in the tax credit scholarship program often return to their neighborhood
public schools below grade level.

That’s what it took and that’s the way the republicans
in Tallahassee do things.
