TALLAHASSEE — Rejected by Florida lawmakers last spring, Gov. Rick Scott is barnstorming for public support for education programs he wants to revive in next year’s state budget.
He’s not alone. Legislators are making their own priority lists of projects that died in 2015 because Scott vetoed them.
Scott paid visits Monday to high school technical centers in Orlando and Miami Lakes to renew his push for a modest $20 million grant program called “a career in a year,” to encourage centers to teach skills to match emerging needs in Florida’s workforce. It’s another way for Scott to emphasize his signature priority of creating jobs.
