Description

WPLG-TV finds that some Florida legislators who attended a national conference in New Orleans billed the state for days when they were not working; one senator was taken to a casino by lobbyists when he should have been attending meetings. As a result of the story, the senator repaid the state for the entire cost of the convention, Oct.11, Nov. 8 - 9, 1994.
