As Legislature returns to Tallahassee, Scott is headed to New York

A cranky Florida Legislature returns to Tallahassee next week for a full schedule of committee meetings, including a closer look at budget requests by the state agencies under Gov. Rick Scott's control.

What better time for the jobs governor to hit the road?

Scott announced Thursday that he will travel to New York City on Oct. 6-8 to meet with prospective employers, including hedge funds and financial institutions, and give a luncheon speech on Florida's resurgent economy to the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research on Oct. 7.

A release from Scott's office noted that about 250,000 people move to Florida each year and that the state is the No. 1 destination for New Yorkers on the move.
