DETAILS

The Legislature could continue to appropriate tax dollars for legal aid organizations that serve low-income Floridians facing civil actions (the governor has inexplicably vetoed such funding).

Florida is one of the few states that don’t contribute to legal aid groups who provide services that help people keep their homes and avoid severe financial troubles; the pro-business group Florida TaxWatch believes legal-aid funding is good for local economies.
