Rick Scott, Black Caucus Find Little Common Ground As 2013 Session Nears http://wlrn.org/post/gov-rick-scott-black-caucus-find-little-common-ground-2013-session-nears <p></p><p>Gov. Rick Scott's hour-long sit-down with the Legislative Black Caucus on Tuesday was frostily correct and almost completely nonproductive for the black lawmakers, according to two accounts of Tuesday's session in Tallahassee.</p><p>The Tampa Bay Times and the Palm Beach Post described the governor as almost completely unyielding on voting rules, ex-felon rights and appointments to the judiciary and other state positions.</p><p>As to the 2011 voting law that many say turned the 2012 election into a Florida disaster, the governor said he should not be blamed for that.</p> Wed, 16 Jan 2013 15:01:39 +0000 Rick Stone 7829 at http://wlrn.org Gov.
