Gov. Scott last week signed into law the Gardiner Scholarship

January

Winner of the week

Andy Gardiner. The governor last week signed into law the "Gardiner Scholarship," a top priority of Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando. It expands scholarships for children with autism, Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities.

Loser of the week

Marion Hammer. Florida's mighty NRA lobbyist usually gets her way in Tallahassee.
