TALLAHASSEE – One of Florida’s top regulators is being
ordered to stay away from his office because of 10 pounds of bat guano
discovered above his desk.
| Inspectors say they found the
bat feces this week in the area right above the ceiling of
Ken Lawson’s office. Lawson is secretary of the Department
of Business and Professional Regulation. They have told
Lawson that no one should enter his office until the guano
is removed. The bat guano was discovered Thursday. State
legislators in the new state budget ordered that state
workers leave the Tallahassee offices where the department
is housed. The new budget says no money can be spent on
lease payments for the offices, but that provision does not
take effect until this summer.
