Governor Stumps in Central Florida

Gov. Rick Scott is promising a billion-dollar tax cut over the next two years.

Scott campaigned for re-election Monday in Winter Park and Kissimmee.

In Winter Park the governor was relaxed and surrounded by an energized crowd of supporters that included the incoming state Senate President Andy Gardiner of Central Florida.

Talking to reporters afterward, the governor explained his rationale for the billion-dollar tax cut.

“As people move to the state, as people have gotten jobs, as home prices have gone up our state revenues are growing. Our sales tax revenue is growing. Around the state our revenues are growing, and so now we’re just making good investments.”

Scott also criticized his gubernatorial challenger Charlie Crist and President Barack Obama for government spending.

On the campaign trail, Scott is proposing big spending on the environment and education including $700 million for schools, more than the $336 million surplus projected for the next fiscal year.
