Florida Declines some Stimulus Money for the Jobless

According to the article, the sunshine state's (whose unemployment insurance fund is expected to run out of money by August) law makers are uncomfortable with some of the strings attached to accepting the money---including the provisions that require unemployment insurance benefits be paid to spouses who have to relocate b/c of their signicant other.
