TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA —  Senate President Don Gaetz, Senate President-Designate Andy Gardiner, House Speaker Will Weatherford, House Speaker-Designate Steve Crisafulli and Rick Scott for Florida Chairman John Thrasher released a joint statement on Charlie Crist’s plans to circumvent the legislature with five executive orders:

“Charlie Crist says he is a ‘man of the people’ but his actions don’t match his rhetoric. Crist is lifting a dangerous page from President Obama’s playbook, saying he will do an end-run around the people’s elected representatives and single-handedly mandate policies through executive order. Such declarations should give Floridians great concern. Charlie Crist is not above the constitution and the law. Florida needs a Governor who will work with the Legislature and not force his personal agenda on Floridians with the stroke of a pen.”
