Dems Call AGs Suit Political

March 25th, 2010 by flanews

Florida Democrats are outraged at Florida Attorney General Bill McCollums lawsuit to block new health care regulations.

McCollum filed his suit just minutes after the president signed the regulations into law. Democratic lawmakers held a news conference today to lambast McCollum for the suit. House Minority Leader Franklin Sands says McCollum, who is running for governor, is using his position and state dollars for political gains.

The Republican Attorney General says this in not political. Well if you believe that I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I would like to talk to you about, said Sands.

The Attorney Generals Office says outside legal fees for the suit are being capped at 50-thousand dollars. McCollum is also working out a cost sharing agreement with the 12 other states joining Florida in the suit.
