Gov. Scott on Bieber: Visiting Florida is ‘nice…but if you come here you’ve got to comply with the law’by George Bennett | January 23rd, 2014
PALM BEACH — Gov. Rick Scott, known for answering almost any question with a plug for economic development, responded to a query about Justin Bieber‘s Miami Beach DUI/drag-racing arrest with a reference to Florida’s tourism stats.
Asked to comment on the Bieber bust, Scott said: “Here’s the nice thing: People want to come to our state. We’ve had record tourism numbers it looks like again last year. So people want to come to our state, basically they like all parts of our state. But if you come here you’ve got to comply with the law.”
Scott dropped by Worth Avenue to decry the lack of action by the federal government to block big increases in flood insurance rates. Scott contends President Barack Obama can block the rate hikes without waiting for Congress to act.
