care and those that people let expire, I don't see why the govern-

The problem I have is that now most companies no longer carry an expiration date on them so they last a life time and now we have a few bozos come along and say they should expire in one year??? Just why you can not see a problem with that alone amazes me.
You can correct me f I was wrong in what you stated, but that is how I took it and truly I think you missed the main point here by accident if I am correct.

No it should not go back to the consumer. If you forgot about it, then you were irresponsible and do not deserve it. Its like "oh a hundred dollars for (retailer), thats cool, I am so rich I will just toss it to the side and forget about it". It should be split 20-80 with the retailer getting 20 and the state getting 80% to fund education, and NOTHING else. Florida is one of the most under-funded schools and our governor was the Presidents damn brother. I would not mind if someone who did not give a damn enough about a set amount of money to use had it siezed for EDUCATION ONLY, and it should written as such.
