    Rosalie Whiley v. Hon. Rick Scott


    View briefs in Acrobat format by clicking the case number(s) here 


    Ms. Whiley is challenging an executive order signed by Gov. Rick Scott that requires additional procedures for rule-making by state agencies under the governor's authority. She argues the governor has overstepped his constitutional authority by unilaterally changing laws passed by the Legislature dealing with rule-making. Governor Scott defends his order, arguing that it is well within the limits of the constitutional authority he has as Florida's "supreme executive power" and "chief administrative officer."
