DeSantis Vetoes Bill to Scrub Minors’ Criminal Records Despite Unanimous Approval
‘dumbfounded’

Despite unanimous approval from both chambers of the Florida legislature, Gov. Ron DeSantis has vetoed a bill that would have scrubbed the criminal records of minors who complete a behavioral program. The veto surprised lawmakers from both parties who expected the bill to be easily approved. “I am, frankly, dumbfounded,” State Sen. Annette Taddeo, a Democrat, told the Miami Herald. In a letter explaining his decision, DeSantis said he had “concerns that the unfettered ability to expunge serious felonies, including sexual battery, from a juvenile’s record may have negative impacts on public safety.” Lawmakers said DeSantis never raised those concerns during the 60-day legislative session, in which both parties passed the bill.

State Sen. Keith Perry, a Republican co-sponsor, said he found the governor’s stance “legitimate” and would work with him to pass the bill next year.

2. Until you get the comment from State Sen. Keith Perry, a Republican co-sponsor,

who finds his concerns legitimate
It's likely dead as a piece of legislation

4. Found on web, for Florida...

"By vetoing a bill, the Governor prevents it from becoming a law and sends it back to its house of origin. ... If two-thirds of the members of each house vote to override (set aside) the Governor's veto, the bill becomes a law."

5. He never raised the concerns during the sesion because ...

... that would imply he supports parliamentary democracy, with its give and take and negotiation among parties.

Vetoing after it passed unanimously display his contempt for elected legislatures, in the true fashion of an autocrat.

In short this is an FU to representative democracy
