TALLAHASSEE — With the Legislature off observing the Passover holiday, the governor and Cabinet leave the state capital for a two-day tour of the Panhandle to mark the first anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Gov. Rick Scott and the three-member Cabinet chose Panama City to hold their regular Cabinet meeting today. It's a light agenda with little controversy expected.
Afterward, Scott is expected to begin a tour of the region, meeting with people and businesses affected by the oil spill.
Last week, Scott joined officials from BP in announcing that seven Panhandle counties would split a $30 million grant from BP to amp up their marketing and tourism efforts.
The House returns to regular session Wednesday, while the Senate remains off all week.
