Florida Gov. Rejects Bill That Would Weaken Background Checks
June 24, 2011
I’ll keep this one short and sweet. Kudos to Florida Governor Rick Scott for vetoing a bill that would have allowed some volunteer workers with in-home social service groups to avoid background checks.
Who in their right mind would think this bill was a good idea? Haven’t we already seen enough stories (especially out of Florida) which deal with abuse of the elderly and those with disabilities? Haven’t we seen our fair share of stories these folks are robbed blind by people offering in-home care?
