Scott Ready to Release Tax Cut Plan

Gov. Rick Scott will make appearances Wednesday in Jacksonville, Tampa and Fort Lauderdale to release a tax-cut proposal for the 2017-2018 budget.

Scott will appear at businesses in each city and also is expected later in the week to take the tax-cut tour to Riviera Beach, Orlando and Fort Myers.

The proposal will be an initial step as lawmakers prepare to draw up a budget during the legislative session that starts March 7. But with a tight budget, it remains unclear how much money will be available for tax cuts.
