Bill watch: Governor vetoes liquor bill

Miami-Dade prosecutor Katherine Fernandez Rundle wants Gov. Rick Scott to veto a sweep of a state attorneys fund Miami Herald Miami Dade prosecutor Katherine Fernandez Rundle wants Gov. Rick Scott to veto a sweep of a state attorneys fund

The three day session will start Wednesday June 7th and conclude on Friday June 9th.

On May 9, a day after the budget was approved by the House and Senate, Scott told reporters in Panama City that Florida won't be in the "game for economic development" due to the cuts to Enterprise Florida and Visit Florida.

Advocates of traditional public education welcomed Gov. Rick Scott's demand on Friday that lawmakers redo the K-12 education budget for next year and boost it with $215 million in additional spending. The House and Senate were unable to reach a compromise on implementing rules before the regular session ended.

The deal also will fund Visit Florida, the state's tourism promotion agency, to the tune of $76 million. House Republicans were adamant that the money could not be used on incentives to lure new businesses to the region.

The work at Daytona Beach International Airport was removed from the budget, as the proposal reportedly didn't follow the proper evaluation process for aviation projects.

Gov. Rick Scott signed measures Friday that will release BP oil-spill settlement money to eight Northwest Florida counties most impacted by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.

The governor's large vetoes were money for public schools that he vetoed as part of a budget deal he worked out with legislators. But absent newfound money, it is very unlikely that lawmakers will again pump up the budget with pet projects, knowing that Scott's veto pen is still unsheathed.

"Sometimes when you miss during a session you are there for 60 days it's high impact your in that bubble and when you miss, you miss narrowly, you miss by inches, " says Speaker Corcoran.

Scott unsuccessfully asked for $250 million a year ago for incentives, and this year his request was for $85 million to fund the Quick Action Closing Fund.

Legislators will return for a special session next week where they are expected to approve spending $100 more for each public school student.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton, said the deal was not yet set in stone.

Democrats are particularly opposed to HB 7069, which also has drawn criticism from many public education leaders and some top Republicans.

"He sold out all his positions to get this bill that screws over public schools", Clemens said.

But Galvano sounded cryptic about the possibility of a separate special session to deal with the regulatory framework for medical marijuana if lawmakers don't agree during next week's session.

Despite the legislature not reaching an agreement on medical marijuana sales, the issue is not on the call for the special session.

Scott said he had been having conversations with Corcoran and Negron for months and feels this process was necessary.
