Call Your Florida Senator: No On Secret Donor Deals With Universities

The Koch Brothers and the secretive American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) want to keep deals between big donors and Florida universities secret.

Following recent revelations of a new (and shady) deal between the FSU economics department and the Kochs, the Florida Senate is now debating passage of a bill (HB 115) that would help block knowledge of donor agreements with all Florida universities.

If passed, this bill would create a new public records exemption for meetings between “direct support organizations” (i.e. the FSU Foundation) and donor organizations when discussing proposed research funding.

Find your state senator today using the form to the right. Urge your senator to vote NO on HB 115, and stop secret donor deals with our public universities.
