Scott, legislative leaders announce special session

Scott, legislative leaders announce special session

Nor are Enterprise Florida officials publicly expressing hope that negotiations between Gov. Rick Scott and House Speaker Richard Corcoran, R-Land O' Lakes, will bolster the money available for the agency.

Gov. Rick Scott signed a almost $83 billion state budget Friday, and released a list of line item vetoes amounting to almost $12 billion. "Our students are the future of our great state and I know Speaker Corcoran is committed to our students, parents and teachers and ensuring Florida offers a world-class education to students at all levels".

For instance, Scott eliminated $1.9 million in funding for two University of Florida education learning centers, arguing the school could fund the projects out of the $741 million it would receive in the coming year. I think he'll probably make the wise decision.

"The people of Florida should be proud today that you can have leaders with competing opinions and still compromise to meet common goals-government in Florida is working and the biggest winners are all Floridians", said Corcoran. But he agreed to $85 million for Enterprise Florida, the state agency that doles out incentives, so long as it's used for a new program that benefit all businesses through job training and infrastructure development.

Northwest Florida counties are going to finally get a share of money given to the state for damages related to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

Scott will sign the $82.4 billion budget, although he is expected to veto individual spending items.

Trump pleased with results of 1st overseas trip
President Trump said his first foreign trip in office was a big success, boasting on Twitter that he saved "millions of jobs". The president tweeted that he'll make a final decision next week on whether the USA will stay in the Paris climate agreement.

"The gaping flaws in HB 7069 haven't changed with this suggested increase in funding", FEA President Joanne McCall said in a written statement.

Premiums earned by the companies on this year's list of Florida health insurance providers totaled $18.12 billion, an 18.05 percent increase from the total earned by the companies listed last year.

And although the new budget bill passed overwhelmingly, an override could be blocked by Senate Democrats, who control 15 of 39 now occupied seats and could use their leverage to increase spending on public schools. Lawmakers will work to find a middle ground during next week's special session.

Enterprise Florida leaders said they've heard of such talks for weeks, but remain focused on the spending plan that lawmakers delivered to Scott.

Sen. Bill Galvano, a Bradenton Republican who is slated to take over as president of the Senate late next year, told The News Service of Florida that lawmakers have yet to strike a deal on implementation of the medical marijuana amendment. "The governor has called us into special session and we will be there and consider any proposals that emerge during that special session", said Negron.
