Florida Enacts Illegal Law Regarding Cuba

Time Global Spin writes that Florida enacted a new law that prohibits state and local government bodies in Florida from hiring companies that do business with Cuba and Syria. But when Governor Scott visited Miami this week to sign it and show support of the portion of the Cuban exile community that believes we should treat Cuba as though it doesn't exist, he stated that the law is actually unenforceable because only the federal government can enact such a law.

Besides the silliness of enacting a useless law, the article points out that the law will likely chill investment in Florida, which is struggling with unemployment and financial issues. It also addresses the new white card announcement that Cuba appears ready to allow its people to travel outside the country more freely.
