Tampa Legislator Blazes Cost-Cutting Trail

Why haven’t any of our North Florida legislator’s been able to accomplish anything similar

State Rep. Mike Scionti, D-Tampa, is putting his taxpayer money where his mouth is. The second-term legislator says cost-cutting in his own office has saved $17,000. Among his budget reducing measures: He opted not to attend any of the annual national legislative conferences for a savings of $2,500; he declined the use of a Blackberry offered to each Florida House member; he cut newsletter and other expenses.
