ORLANDO, Fla. - Orange County voters saw a question about paid sick time on Tuesday's primary ballot even though state law won't allow it.
The ballot question
In 2012, 50,000 residents signed a petition in support of the measure, but commissioners blocked the issue from the ballot at that time.
Since then, a judge ruled commissioners had no legal right to keep it off the ballot. However, a state law was later passed that prevents governments from requiring sick pay.
The bottom line is that no matter how the vote goes on Tuesday, it won't matter.
