Florida Gov. lashes out at GOP leader over jobs money


Scott, who released his budget recommendations last week, is asking legislators to set aside $85 million for business incentives and $76 million for Visit Florida.

The move by Scott is a signal that this year’s session and the passage of a new state budget will likely be contentious and may not be wrapped up within the normal 60-day session. So far, key Senate Republicans are siding with the governor. State legislators must pass a budget by the end of June or they will risk a state government shutdown.
