Rick Scott, Lenny Curry to attend White House event with Trump

WASHINGTON - With the special session under way in Tallahassee, Gov. Rick Scott will be at the White House Thursday for a "listening session" on infrastructure with President Donald Trump.

He will join a number of governors and state, local and private sector leaders "who are interested in working together to improve our nation’s infrastructure," a White House spokesman says.

Scott has made repeated trips to Washington for events with Trump or meetings with administration officials.

His office confirmed he will attend, and the meeting lands as a three-day special session is under way in Tallahassee.

Also participating in the White House event is Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry and Leon County Commissioner Bryan Desloge.
