VICTORY: Florida Prison Privatization Bill Stopped

Tallahassee Florida Capitol

Florida’s Republican Governor Rick Scott tried to fast-track legislation to privatize 29 prisons without public input. But corrections officer Christina Bullins knew firsthand that prison privatization would undermine public safety and waste tax dollars, so she started a MoveOn Petition┬áthat garnered over 27,000 petition signatures. In the face of widespread public opposition, Republicans had to admit that they didn’t have the votes to pass the bill and never even brought it up for a vote.
