Florida Senate President Calls for Random Audits of Lobbying Firm Compensation Reports
Senate President Don Gaetz is calling for random audits of lobbying firm compensation reports. Gaetz says funding was never set aside for audits to be performed in the past, so he has asked the Senate general counsel to determine what powers the Legislature has to provide funding to conduct audits going forward.
House Speaker Will Weatherford has already indicated his support for the proposal.
