Brickbats to Gov. Rick Scott
Brickbats to Gov. Rick Scott for being a little slash-happy with his veto pen. Among the projects he nixed were a $50 million coast-to-coast bike trail; Jacksonville Mayor Alvin Brown’s $500,000 Learn2Earn program, which gives high school students a look at college life, and $300,000 worth of improvements for the Clay County Courthouse. Scott vetoed about $386 million in spending. The $74.1 billion budget goes into effect July 1.
