Connor objects to "golden parachutes'

Florida's taxpayers should not have to spend $2-million to close an agency created in 1987 to help small businesses get health insurance for employees. That was the complaint Monday from Ken Connor, a Republican running for governor. Connor objected to a proposal submitted by Florida Health Access Corp. for "golden parachutes" for employees whose jobs will be phased out over two years. President Ree Sailors could get between $105,000 and $157,000. Last week the corporation petitioned legislators for dissolution, saying its work is done. A spokeswoman for the corporation did not return telephone calls Monday.
