Clock ticking for Gov. Rick Scott on three major bills

The clock is ticking as Gov. Rick Scott must act by midnight tonight on three major bills passed by the Legislature.

The measures would ban permanent alimony in Florida, expand the powers of the Commission on Ethics and make changes to campaign finance laws, including increasing the maximum contribution limits, which Scott opposes.

Scott must sign the bills, veto them or let them become law without his signature. The ethics and campaign finance bills are priorities of House Speaker Will Weatherford and Senate President Don Gaetz.
