Gov. Scott considering possible budget vetoes

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Governor Rick Scott is taking a look at possible items he'll veto from the state's proposed $77.1 billion budget. Lots of it could come from the bay area.

Last week, Florida Taxwatch released its budget turkeys, projects they think the governor should get rid of.

The legislature allocated $2.7 million dollars to Duval County all together.

Taxwatch says they're not questioning the worthiness of the projects, yet the process in which they were added.

The governor's office avoided specific questions about Duval County projects they might veto and sent this quote:

"Our office will work within the June 4 deadline to produce a final tax cut budget that invests in Florida's future, puts the state on a path toward continued job growth, and provides Floridians with half a billion dollars in tax relief."

"We have to be constantly vigilant to ensure that the expenditure of other people's monies, of taxpayers funds, of the money they worked hard to earn is being spent according to processes intended to establish transparency," said Robert Weissert with Florida Taxwatch.
