Florida Gov. Rick Scott continued his political evolution Wednesday in opposing conservative-sought budget cuts -- this time because of hurricane preparedness.
Scott's made his comments during the Governor's Hurricane Conference in Fort Lauderdale where he wondered if the National Guard would have the money and the manpower to help the state recover from a disaster. Under the federal budget cuts, known as "sequestration," guard members could be furloughed, improperly trained or both.
“My biggest concern is that while they say sequestration will stop during a disaster, are they going to be ready in the meantime?” Scott asked.
