Florida Agencies Will Have to Buy Flags Made in USA

All Florida city, county and state government agencies will have to buy state and American flags that are made in the United States under a bill going to Gov. Rick Scott.

The Senate passed the bill Wednesday on a 38-1 vote. The House passed the bill last month.

Democratic Sen. Jeff Clemens used debate on the bill to take a jab at the House, which adjourned three days early and let many significant bills die.

Clemens said it was a great bill because Americans work hard and would never quit and go home early.

The Senate remained in session and is passing bills already passed by the House, as well as some of their own, knowing they will die because the House can't take them up.
