9-1-1 Bill Getting Special Treatment

March 10th, 2010 by flanews

House leadership is rushing legislation through the process that would exempt 911 calls from public records requests.

The legislation passed its only committee stop this morning after the Republican House Speaker stacked the vote. Representative Scott Randolph, a Democrat, voted against the legislation.

Clearly the speakers office put enough emphasis on this bill that they wanted to ensure its passage by using a special rule to bring in an extra person from leadership, said Randolph.

Speaker Larry Cretul reportedly promised the president of the Florida Farm Bureau he would pass the legislation. The president has sought a ban on the release of 911 tapes, after Orlando TV stations replayed calls made on behalf of his 16 year old son, who allegedly overdosed on prescription drugs and alcohol last year.
