Brickbat to Florida House and Senate Leaders


Brickbat to Florida House and Senate leaders for plans to make $200 million of the multi-state foreclosure settlement available as general revenue. And both the House and Senate plan to sweep $180 million from a trust fund meant for affordable housing and put it in the general fund. “These settlement funds were intended to help desperate homeowners hold on. They were not intended as a ‘help yourself’ pot of money for lawmakers to raid in Tallahassee,” as Sen. Darren Soto, a Democrat from Orlando, was quoted in The Florida Current.
