Scott to kick off tax-and-fee cutting tour in West Palm Beachby John Kennedy | September 6th, 2013
A week after announcing he planned to cut state taxes and fees by $500 million next year, Gov. Rick Scott said Friday that he’s taking that message on a five-city tour next week – beginning Tuesday in West Palm Beach.
The “It’s Your Money” tour will last from Tuesday through Friday with details on the stops still to come. Along with West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa will host visits by Scott.
Scott unveiled his election-year give-back plan last week at a convention in Orlando of Americans for Prosperity, the conservative activist group that is closely alligned with the tea party movement. Scott has provided no specifics on his tax-and-fee cutting approach, but will undoubtedly helped by a state budget surplus that analysts say will be at least $845 million next year.
