Sen. Gaetz Agrees with Governor on Special Session

The Dream Defenders are entering into their third week at the state capitol demanding a special session of the legislature.

Governor Rick Scott met with the protesters the first week they started staying at the capitol. He told the group he would not call for a special session. The group says they are not going anywhere until he does so.

Senate President Don Gaetz says he backs the governor’s decision. “I stand with Governor Scott on this and I stand with Speaker Weatherford. I think you call a special session of the legislature when you have a landing zone that’s agreed upon on an issue.”

The protesters say they will stay put until their demands are met.
