Rick Scott, Marco Rubio avoid comment on Trump's oil drilling push

Published May 2, 2017

Democratic and Republican politicians in Florida have expressed concern about the Trump administration's renewed push for offshore oil drilling, but two high-profile figures are noticeably quiet.

"I haven't seen his proposal," Gov. Rick Scott told the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday, declining to say more on the issue.

We asked Sen. Marco Rubio, too, and he's refused comment.
