Alex Sink: Good job, Charlie Crist, on Senate Bill 6



From Florida Chief Financial Officer and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink:

"I am pleased that Governor Crist stood up for parents and children by vetoing the radical bill passed by the Legislature and supported by Attorney General McCollum. In addition to the unfunded mandate that Senate Bill 6 placed on our school districts, this harmful proposal dictated a rigid, one-size-fits-all policy to our local schools.

"As a mother who proudly saw her two children graduate from Florida's public schools, I am grateful for the teachers that taught my kids along the way. And I am committed to making sure that our local communities and local school districts are the ones who make these types of decisions for our teachers and local schools."
