I heard about this on NPR this morning :
FL: Senate bill would allow privatization to be secretA Senate committee will consider a bill that would allow lawmakers to secretly privatize or outsource state agency functions. The bill essentially means that an agency would not have to report its privatization of a program or service until after the contract is signed. Open government advocates say the bill would keep the public in the dark about the costs of outsourcing government services. But proponents counter that the measure requires any privatization deal to first offer “a substantial savings” to the state. Also being considered is a related bill (PCB 7172) on the privatization of correctional facilities. Miami Herald
THIS IS WRONG! STOP THIS NONSENSE NOW! WHAT IS *WRONG* WITH YOU PEOPLE THAT YOU WOULD EVEN CONSIDER DOING SUCH A THINK?????
The so-called *proponents* of the bill are simply looking to line their pockets - why do I SMELL RICK SCOTT IN THIS PROPOSAL? STOP IT!
