Alimony reform hot topic in this year's legislature
FLORIDA -- Alimony reform was one of the hottest topics of last year's legislative session and it may be again.
Lawmakers passed a reform bill last year but Governor Scott vetoed it.
His complaint disgruntled spouses would have been allowed to change their existing settlements based on the new law.
Representative Rich Workman is planning to scale back his proposal and try again.
Rep. Rich Workman/(R) Brevard County: "Should never use a second spouse's income to determine alimony increase award for the allegory, right? I mean, so let's not use that, let's take that out of law, let's make sure judges can't do that. Let's make sure that if you lie about cohabitation that you have to pay back the alimony that you received once you lied about living with your new spouse."
Workman is expected to file the new version of his bill next week.
