A $3 million veto by Gov. Rick Scott might become a $63 million budget cut that affects one of the governor’s celebrated priorities — improved technology for Florida’s schools.
“We’re in a little bit of a pickle here,” said state Senate Education Committee Chairman John Legg, R-Trinity. “I have requested a definite clarification.”
Legg has concerns that $60 million allocated in the 2015-16 budget for classroom technology will not be released to school districts because the money is tied to a $3 million study that Scott rejected.
