Scott's Budget Plan
From a Tea Party rally in Eustis to the state capitol, Governor Rick Scott spent Monday explaining his bold spending plan.
Scott wants to limit state spending to 65 billion dollars, that's nearly a five billion cut.
It includes 2.6 billion in spending reductions and two billion in tax cuts divided among corporations and homeowners.
It also includes eliminating 8,600 state jobs.
The biggest proposed cut is to education.
Schools would receive three billion fewer dollars than they did a year ago. But not every office, agency and department would get scaled back.
According to Scott's budget proposal his office would grow but it will also take on more responsibility.
Progress Florida is just one of dozens of groups concerned about the spending cuts.
