Good piece Gary. Just an FYI. The Florida Statute that gives the Governor the ability to declare a state of emergency and therefore exercise various duties like suspending tolls on the turnpike to aid evacuation is grounded in Florida statute 252. Its very short and some say very vague. Others argue it was intended to be vague so the Governor could do what they deemed best in an emergency.
Gary Fineout nails it.
Gary, great points. But my view is lot's of people influence state government, without having to register as a lobbyist. As the late Governor and Senator of Louisiana Huey Long once said. "Don't write, if you can call, don't call, if we can meet face-to-face, don't talk if you nod, and don't nod if you can wink".
