Scott wraps D.C. visit as transparency expert at AEI think tank



Gov. Rick Scott wraps up a two-day visit to the nation's capital Thursday with an interview with conservative columnist and pundit George Will and a luncheon speech to the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. Scott, a former chief executive of the Columbia/HCA hospital chain whose billing practices resulted in Medicare fraud fines of $1.7 billion, will speak on the need for more transparency in pricing in the hospital industry.

The event will be live streamed on AEI's web site.

Scott is due back in Tallahassee later Thursday afternoon in advance of an Enterprise Florida board meeting in the state capital on Friday.
