Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi used an appearance on Fox News on Sunday to share her thoughts on Gov. Rick Scott’s Medicaid decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the “drug-sniffing dog” case and human trafficking problems in Florida.
Bondi said she “firmly disagrees” with Scott’s decision to expand Medicaid coverage under the Obamacare legislation. But the Florida Legislature will have the final say, and she said she expects it to make the right call.
“This could really devastate our state,” Bondi said. “And cost a tremendous amount of money.”
Bondi was more approving of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding a police officer’s use of “Aldo,” a retired drug-sniffing dog, to search a truck during a routine traffic stop.
“This unanimous opinion affects all drug dogs across the country, and they are so vital to criminal investigation,” Bondi said.
Bondi also commented on the issue of human trafficking, saying people are not even aware it exists. She said it is a pervasive problem throughout Florida but more prevalent in South Florida.
“We fought very hard last session, and we’ve got some tough legislation,” Bondi said. “We’re doing everything we can to make Florida and the country zero tolerance.”
