For months Sandra in Brevard has been asking that question here and on Grumpy Educators. Florida Senator Paula Dockery has been asking the same question, Senator Steve Wise and others who are trying convince Floridians that the bill's passage is urgent,and they along with President Obama and Jeb Bush have the only answer, have flatly refused to discuss real cost or the laws impact on taxpayers in the future.
Just before the vote, Dockery asked Wise publicly on the floor of the Senate what SB 736 would cost in Florida. Now would someone tell me WTF he actually said about costs?
