PolitiFact Florida tracks Rick Scott's first 100 days in office

Today is Gov. Rick Scott's 100th day in office, a symbolic marker in an elected executive's first term. The date is of no official significance -- the idea of a "first 100 days" started with President Franklin D. Roosevelt -- but it is often used as a gauge for officials to try to move their agenda, and as an opportunity for others to look back and reflect.

PolitiFact Florida measures Scott's first 100 days by seeing his progress on 59 of his most prominent campaign promises.

PolitiFact updates Scott's promise to drug test welfare recipients, and also looks at promises related to virtual schools, and how expert testimony is admitted into Florida's court system.
