Gov. Rick Scott says Justin Bieber welcome to visit Florida, but needs to follow rules



The Palm Beach Post caught up with Gov. Rick Scott as he visited the city to talk about flood insurance hikes. But the reporter did the rightful thing and asked the governor about the real news of the day, teen pop idol Justin Bieber's arrest early Thursday morning in Miami.

The following is what Scott said, according to the Post:

“Here’s the nice thing: People want to come to our state. We’ve had record tourism numbers it looks like again last year. So people want to come to our state, basically they like all parts of our state. But if you come here you’ve got to comply with the law.”
