Scott inks $77 billion budget; spares the veto rod
Orlando Sentinel, June 2, 2014
Rick Scott signed a record $77 billion, election-year budget Monday that boosts spending on schools and the environment while sparing hundreds of millions in local projects from the threat of vetoes. For instance, virtually all of the projects pushed by incoming Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, including $15.5 million for a biking trail connecting Florida’s east and west coasts, were spared.

Gov. Scott can blaze amazing trail by approving Coast-to-Coast Connector
Tampa Bay Times, May 10, 2013
If you have driven Florida, or better yet, hiked or biked it, maybe you noticed how this place changes as you move through it — beach towns and then rolling citrus groves inland, cities and then country towns where they sell fresh strawberries by the road, thick forests and Everglade swamps. Florida is placid gulf and pounding Atlantic both.  And awaiting the governor’s approval is something that’s all about the best we have here, and the chance to see it from the perfect perspective.
