Sansom's college is back for millions
Though Northwest Florida State College, which now employs Sansom, wants $13.2-million in the upcoming fiscal year, the Department of Education is recommending only $748,000, according to records.
In the past, a small construction budget for the school has not stopped the Destin Republican. During the last two years, when he was the House's top budget writer, Sansom helped the college get $35-million above what had been budgeted.
But now Sansom is embroiled in controversy over taking a $110,000 job at the college on the same day he was sworn in as House speaker. (story here)
