Description

For the first time in state history, a government agency - the Florida House - allowed some of its employees to use cellphones for work purposes that were paid for by a private group. In this case, a handful of higher-ups in the House were using phones paid for by the state's Republican party. In turn, they refused to disclose what calls were being made, even though state law requires access to all records related to the operations of the House.
