Gov. Rick Scott vetoes alimony bill, signs ethics and campaign finance
Gov. Rick Scott late Wednesday signed into law changes to state ethics and campaign finance laws and vetoed a bill that would have abolished permanent alimony in Florida divorce cases. Read the veto letter.
The Legislature sent Scott all three measures one week ago, setting in motion a seven-day deadline for the governor. The ethics and campaign finance bills were must-pass priorities for House Speaker Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, and Senate President Don Gaetz, R-Niceville.
