House asks voters to kill public campaign financing


The Florida House has overwhelmingly voted to place an amendment on the 2008 ballot that would ask voters to repeal the state's public campaign finance laws. The House voted 82-34 in favor of the amendment.

"Let's end this welfare for politicians,'' said Rep. Alan Hays, a Umatilla Republican who said he was shocked to find that the state spent millions in 2006 to help statewide candidates for office.

The vote by the House is a stinging rebuke to Gov. Charlie Crist, who not only utilized the public finance law but has said he is in favor of keeping it. Former Gov. Jeb Bush, by contrast, refused to use public money and regularly derided the program.
