Gelber to McCollum: File suit over education funding



Gelberheadshot State Sen. Dan Gelber, a Miami Beach Democrat running for attorney general, tells current Attorney General Bill McCollum in a letter today that McCollum should immediately file suit "against the Legislature and the governor challenging the adequacy of education funding in Florida."

"If you believe an action of the state -- in this case the passing of a budget that fails to adequately provide a high-quality system of free public schools -- creates a constitutional violation, you are obliged to exercise the broad powers that rest within your office and would allow you to remedy the violation. I believe it is hard not to find such a violation exists."
