These are two bills, that if signed into law, will take way the transparencies of government and the citizens' rights to oppose to any public changes with state agencies. As broken by an independent journalist, Stephen D. Foster Jr., here is a clip of the article talking about these two bills.

"Florida Republicans are desperate to privatize the prison system in the state, which had been stalled by a judge in Tallahassee. So, they have introduced SB 2036 and SB 2038 to do just that. The measures would allow the state government to privatize prisons in secret and would also allow the government to secretly outsource the work of other state agencies. In other words, citizens could literally wake up one morning and find that their government by the people, for the people, and of the people has been given to corporations that don’t give a damn about what the people have to say. But that’s not all. The measures also give agencies the option of not reporting the privatization of a program until after it has already been done. So citizens won’t even have a chance to object. The bills also give the state legislature the power to privatize any government function it wants."
These bills must be stopped before they pass. These bills can AND will be the ground work for this on a federal level. They are unconstitutional and should not be allowed to rob us of the transparencies and freedoms we have worked for.
