But while the House intends to end the lawsuit, House Speaker Richard Corcoran said lawmakers will continue their dogged pursuit of how government agencies spend taxpayers money. Pitbull, whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, released via Twitter his 11-page contract with Floridas tourism-marketing arm Visit Florida. The contract outlined the terms of the $1 million deal that expired June 30 to promote the state through videos, social media and at concerts. FULL DISCLOSURE --- FLORIDA, Perez tweeted in all caps. The release came after House attorneys filed a lawsuit Tuesday seeking a ruling on a claim by PDR Production that the contract from the 2015-16 fiscal year included trade secrets that kept terms of the deal out of the public. The lawsuit, filed in Leon County circuit court, also sought immunity from civil action for House members and staff if they potentially disclosed terms of the contract. It is unfortunate that it took litigation to lift the veil of secrecy on this particular contract, Corcoran, R-Land O Lakes, said in a statement Thursday. This was a long, unnecessary journey through claims of trade secrets, threats of prosecution, and corporate welfare paid for by taxpayers. Lawmakers want to discuss the rappers contract, along with separate deals with London-based Fulham Football Club and an IMSA racing team, as they review Visit Floridas request for $76 million in state funding next year. The Fulham Football Club deal is worth $1.25 million in the current fiscal year, while the IMSA deal is valued at nearly $2.9 million. Fulham is owned by Shad Khan, owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars NFL franchise. House Minority Leader Janet Cruz, D-Tampa, called the disclosure a win as Floridians can now judge if the contract was a good deal for the state. For state government to be fully accountable to the people of Florida, these decisions must be made without secrecy and in the sunshine at all times, Cruz said in a statement. There is no excuse for a lack of transparency when it comes to how taxpayer dollars are being spent, she said.

Any information is greatly appreciated.: Thanks yeah i've been interested in the practice of medicine ever since my first visit to the ER and i am fascinated about how dockers can save peoples lives and i also want to do that as well Cm planning to be a anthesiologist well this was great info. hi my name is Angela i am an 7th grader but will be going into 8th after the summer ends.i ave been interested in anaesthesia ever since i was a 7 year old the practices of medicine have always fascinated me and how one injection can change so many functions of the body.i plan ongoing to Uconn and am aware of the 4 years of college 4 years of medical school and the 4 years of intern ship or residency and the i also know that their will be new development in the field of medicine and their will be seminars on the new found aesthetics in hgihschool i plan on taking organic and inorganic chemistry, physics,calculus,biology,biochem and maybe cell biology and genetics but are these the courses i should take? For example the median expected annual pay for a typical Physician - anaesthesiology in the United States is $351,328, so 50% of the people who perform the job of Physician - anaesthesiology in the United States are expected to make less than $351,328. I had been extremely nervous before he entered the room, but as he was administering the anaesthesia, I felt much better about the whole procedure. I was also wondering what some good schools are to take these classes at?
