A scheduled Wednesday meeting of Florida’s clemency board has been called off because of the death of former President George H.W. Bush and a memorial service in Washington, D.C.
Governor Rick Scott and state Cabinet members sit on the board. It’s the last clemency meeting before Amendment 4 goes into effect. When asked what the scheduling change means for Floridians hoping to have their rights restored Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam says, “I don’t know the answer to it I assume that it’s postponed.”
