Senate Fails to Confirm Scott Appointees

Posted: March 24, 2012 in News and politics

Gov. Rick Scott’s picks to run universities, colleges, state agencies and other important boards are now in limbo.

The Florida Senate failed to confirm more than 400 appointments Scott has made in the last year during the regular 60-day legislative session that ended Friday.

Some of those who were not confirmed include the heads of the state’s prison agency, as well as the agency that works with the disabled and the agency that oversees Florida’s elections.

The Senate also refused to confirm four members of the State Board of Education, the panel that hires the education commissioner and is responsible for setting policy for the state’s public schools.

Others who were not confirmed include members of university and college boards, water management district boards, the Florida Citrus Commission and the Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
