WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has stopped putting annual pay raises in contracts with private consultants. They took that action after a public records request by Democratic State Senator Dave Aronberg.
Further, the FDOT head told Aronberg, a Democratic candidate for attorney general, that the agency has already renegotiated some contracts to remove salary increases from amounts that have yet to be paid to â€œreduce the extent and impact of salary modification terms that may be included in existing consultant contracts.â€
WMNF spoke with Senator Aronberg this afternoon. He is running for the Democratic nomination for Attorney General.
