On Tuesday, Senators inquired as to military leadership problems related to MacDill Airforce Base. Military families have been complaining about mold issues in living spaces.
Specifically, Senator Rick Scott said, “They’re never going to fix this if they don’t have the capital to do it and they can’t get the capital to do it.” Scott also blamed Democratic members of the government for holding up a vote that would provide solutions.
Some families have been affected so badly that they are speaking out in the media and suing their property managers.
