Florida newspapers weigh in on Gov. Rick Scott's proposed budget



Newspapers across the state are weighing in with editorials on Gov. Rick Scott's $79.3 billion proposed budget for Florida's upcoming fiscal year.

Not all of it in a favorable way.

Among the reactions: an editorial in the Tampa Bay Times says Scott's spending plan "is aimed at generating headlines to use in his next campaign rather than investing in a state government facing systemic failure in nearly every corner."

A Sun-Sentinel editorial questions both Scott's priorities and his math, concluding, "His numbers don't add up."
