FL Cuba-Syria Law Appeal on March 21st
Another reason why Odebrecht and Miami International Airport (MIA) are in a rush to quickly push their rigged, back-room, non-transparent “Airport City” deal through the Miami-Dade County Commission.
From State Capitol Briefs:
A federal appeals court has scheduled arguments March 21 in Florida’s effort to move forward with a law that would block state and local governments from contracting with companies that have business links to Cuba and Syria. A federal district judge last June issued an injunction against the 2012 law, saying it likely violated the U.S. Constitution. That prompted an appeal by the state. The law, which was challenged by Odebrecht Construction, Inc., would prevent companies from receiving government contracts of $1 million or more if they do business in Cuba or Syria or are affiliated with firms that do business there.
