Fla. Supreme Court hears initial arguments on governor’s executive powers

Fla. Supreme Court hears initial arguments on governor’s executive powers

The Florida Supreme Court heard arguments Wednesday on one of Rick Scott’s first and most substantial acts as governor, which drew a legal challenge earlier this year. # Rosalie Whiley, a blind woman seeking to reapply for food stamps, challenged Scott’s authority to suspend rulemaking by executive agencies, an effort intended to reign in out-of-control regulations, but that also ensared agencies’ efforts to do things like create a streamlined application for food stamps. (That specific rulemaking effort, Scott’s lawyers were quick to point out, has since been approved, and is again moving through the process.) # Scott froze rulemaking the day he took office, in his first executive order (.pdf), which also created the Office of Fiscal Accountability and Regulatory Reform (aka OFARR)
