FlaglerLive | August 16, 2011
Gov. Rick Scott exceeded his power when freezing agency rulemaking through an executive order earlier this year, a divided Florida Supreme Court said today. The court, in a 5-2 ruling, agreed with a disabled woman on food stamps who had argued that rulemaking is a legislative province. Scott created an office within his administration from which all state agencies had to seek permision to make or change rules.
