Gov. Scott To Tout Tax Cuts During Campaign Stops
TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott plans to tout tax and fee cuts when he hits the campaign trail this week.
Scott plans to make appearances in eight cities to talk about the $500 million in cuts. The main centerpiece is a nearly $400 million rollback in auto registration fees that kicks in this fall.
Legislators also approved a three day back-to-school sales tax holiday as well as tax holidays for hurricane preparation supplies and energy efficient appliances.
Scott plans to hammer former Gov. Charlie Crist during the tour. Crist signed off on the auto fee increases in 2009. Crist has maintained he would have rolled them back sooner if was still governor.
Scott plans stops in Miami, Tampa, Orlando, Fort Myers, West Palm Beach, Jacksonville, Panama City, and Gainesville.
