as ever, the people are screwed again, its not the state of florida info that was breached it was the people, but as ever we get screwed over and over. someday American people will wake the heck up and demand an explanation, demand accountability and demand their money's worth, until then we will continue to get it up the yin-yang and smile while getting it too. this is another farce to us all! ooooo, they are going to use it to secure their own data, and you believe that?? ya right, tell me another freeking fairy tale

Ok what is this nonsense. If the people who are hurt don't get any recompense why does the state get to determine how this money is spent.

Only thing more screwed up in it's logic is if the credit card companies or banks were given the money as settlement... and maybe they deserve it more if they had to cover losses credit card holders that had been compromised by the breach incurred.
Just another instance of how government is all about money and not the public welfare. They took the tobacco settlement money, even raise taxes on tobacco products, but can't make the hard call to just make the products illegal. Yea, you can take care of your parent dying from cancer of the lung, and your insurance company help, but the government gets the money.
I'd expect their next 'logical' step will be to impose a tax on credit card use to pay for the continued support of this effort they set up to monitor customers personal data. And hey, if the government monitors it, shouldn't it be available under the Freedom of Information Act?
