Scott Heading to Fort Myers to Highlight Transportation Budget
Gov. Rick Scott will be in Fort Myers on Friday to highlight the transportation portion of his $74.2 billion fiscal plan he has already presented to state legislators.
A release from the governors office states that Scott will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. at the Swift Sunguide Center, which is the regional transportation management hub for I-75 in Southwest Florida.
Scotts proposal for transportation included $3.6 billion for highway construction, $144 million for county transportation projects, $288 million for seaports, $169 million for aviation, and $20 million for Space Florida.
On Monday, Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Ananth Prasad said the final numbers on the transportation portion of the budget would soon be unveiled at $8.5 billion, $200 million more than Scott had proposed last month.
