MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – A Tallahassee judge is ordering Gov. Rick Scott to hand over copies of his travel schedule after the governor’s office tried to contend the information is confidential.

Circuit Judge Charles Dodson gave the Scott administration 10 days to produce copies of his schedule running from July 20 of this year until Oct. 31. The information must include his campaign and fundraising schedule as well as anything related to his official duties. Scott is running for U.S. Senate.

Positive Healthcare Florida asked for Scott’s schedule amid a contract dispute involving Florida’s Medicaid program. The company is losing a contract to provide services to people infected with HIV or AIDS.

The governor’s refused to hand over the information, saying it would reveal surveillance procedures. But Dodson ruled that the exemption does not apply to the governor’s travel record.
