Florida Governor Rick Scott is pushing for even more tax cuts for Florida’s largest corporations – who are also some of the largest polluters in Florida. For instance the Pensacola chemical company, now called ASCEND, formerly Monsanto and Solutia discharges over 30 million pounds of toxics into Pensacola’s aquifer and air. AT NO CHARGE!!! Why do the citizens of Escambia County allow this huge corporation to use the Floridan aquifer as a hazardous waste dump? This practice was outlawed over 30 years ago, yet this company is allowed to continue this dangerous, deadly practice.
And Rick Scott wants to eliminate their corporate income tax and sales tax on purchases? REALLY?
