SB 1214, which is an economic development package sponsored by Senator Latvala, now includes handouts to film and sports executives, which is a perfect example of representing special interests.

Not only does this bill pick winners and losers by giving away taxpayer dollars as handouts, it also creates a lack of transparency in the Quick Action Closing Fund, which could pave the way for up to two million dollars of taxpayer money to be given out at once without any legislative oversight.

The Florida Senate is getting ready to vote on this bill.
