Winner of the week
Private schools. Operators of private schools have to relish what Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Friday. He wants to increase the flow of public dollars to scholarships that let parents send their kids to private schools. If it mirrors the current tax credit scholarship program, that’s a windfall of hundreds of millions of new dollars.
Loser of the week
Broward voters. An open House seat will stay open through the 60-day legislative session even though Democrat Dan Daley was the only candidate to qualify. House Speaker Jose Oliva cited Florida election law in saying Daley won’t be seated until after the scheduled June 18 general election. That this district represents Parkland adds insult to a grieving bloc of voters.
