Scott, Atwater to Meet On Legislative Issues

Gov. Rick Scott and state Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater plan to meet Tuesday afternoon, as Scott prepares to appoint a replacement for Atwater.

Update: The governor’s schedule did not list a topic of the meeting, but his office says it will be about legislative priorities.

The CFO announced Friday that he will leave the Cabinet post after the legislative session to take a job at Florida Atlantic University. Scott’s schedule says the pair will meet at 1:10 p.m. at the Capitol.

Scott also will meet Tuesday afternoon with Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn. The schedule doesn’t say what they will talk about, but Scott has received support from mayors for his economic-development priorities.
