From the Buzz:

With Florida anticipating its first budget surplus in five years, Gov. Rick Scott will seek an across-the-board pay raise for public school teachers in the budget he will send to the Legislature next week.

A source close to the governor says Scott will unveil the proposal on Wednesday when he visits a middle school in suburban Orlando, in the crux of the state's politically vital I-4 corridor. The amount of the pay hike has not been disclosed.

According to a state-by-state survey by the National Education Association, average teacher salaries in Florida are among the lowest in the country.
