Florida’s new Governor, Rick DeSantis retracted 169 appointments that the former governor made right before leaving office. Some of these were to the Florida Board of Medicine, Board of Acupuncture, Board of Optometry, Board of Podiatric Medicine and others. This isn't the first time he has called back last-minute decisions made by his predecessor. In January 2019, he retracted 46 of Scott’s so-called “lame duck appointments.”
Florida's new governor has now pulled a total of 215 of Scott’s prior appointments to various boards and committees.
