Charlie Justice’s statement on SB 216 becoming law – prohibits tax dollars from being spent on political ads

in Statewide by
“I would like to commend supporters of SB 216 and Governor Crist for making such a valuable piece of legislation law. Today marks the beginning of a new era of government accountability, as this will ensure that governments will not be telling taxpayers how to vote, but rather allow voters to be the final arbiter in determining what is good policy for our communities. Gone are the days of unjust and irresponsible campaign spending from our government. I will continue to fight for campaign finance reform in Tallahassee, and I will continue to seek government accountability for our taxpayers.”
