Florida governor vetoes alimony bill

The Governor of Florida, at the last possible moment, vetoed an alimony bill that the Florida legislature presented to him recently. Had the governor not done so, the bill would have made Florida the fifth state in the county to eliminate permanent alimony.

In his message explaining his decision, the governor complained that while the bill had several strong points to it, the bill would have applied to Florida men and women who were already receiving alimony under a court order. The governor was extremely reluctant to cut off this source of financial support upon which people rely and feared that the sudden abolition of all permanent alimony would adversely impact Florida families.
