Scott to spend Saturday on budget review until…by John Kennedy | May 20th, 2011
Gov. Rick Scott is bearing down on the $69.7 billion budget — scheduling a full, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday’s worth of work on the spending plan approved by lawmakers earlier this month.
Scott has until June 1 to act on the measure. He’s already said “savings” will emerge from the plan when he’s done — a hint that some level of vetoes are in store. And organizations ranging from environmental groups to educators and transportation industry advocates are offering advice on what to veto, or not.
For what it’s worth, Scott apparently is knocking off an hour before California radio preacher Harold Camping is predicting the beginning of the end of the world.
