State attorneys use their own dime to protest budget cuts

Florida's 20 state attorneys are spending their own personal money to buy advertising on the Sayfie Review  to warn about the potential for budget cuts in the coming year as lawmakers grapple with a $2.5 billion shortfall spread out over the next 18 months.

The ad, which features a warning "Don't Put Criminals Back on the Street," links to a website maintained by the state attorneys that warns that "every dollar taken away from criminals compromises public safety."
