State Plane Use

July 2nd, 2009 by Mike Vasilinda

Ethics complaints are now pending against CFO Alex Sink and Attorney General Bill McCollum for their use of state planes. Both complaints were filed by people in the opposite political party as both Sink and McCollum vie to be the next Governor of Florida. Sink has ordered her office to investigate the use of state planes. She says the report could be ready soon.

Well, Im here to do the right thing,” Sink said. “Im the one who called for the logs to be put on the web so that any Florida citizen could see how the state plane is being used, and certainly with this review that Ive asked my office to do about our use of the state plane. My total intent is to absolutely do the right thing.

Whos using the state plane and what was paid is now posted on the internet for all to see. You can find the information here: http://dms.myflorida.com/business_operations/specialized_services/aircraft_operations/state_aircraft_flight_information
