The governor has no guts. He just signed an anti-Cuba bill, and an hour later he backpedaled.
Here are some excerpts from an article at the Canadian Business News:
MIAMI (AP) — Gov. Rick Scott signed a bill on Tuesday banning the state and local governments from hiring companies that do business in Cuba. But in a surprise turn an hour later, Scott wrote that the bill would not be implemented.
Florida International University Political Science Professor Dario Moreno said the law could still go into effect, but if the governor chooses not to enforce it, it's essentially invalid.
JG: Only the United States Congress can pass laws which regulate trade between the U.S. and other nations. The Florida law is basically unconstitutional and the courts will hold it invalid.
