TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott will roll out his budget recommendations at a tea party event in the small central Florida town of Eustis.
The new Republican governor on Tuesday confirmed he would break with usual practice by unveiling his spending plan next Monday away from Tallahassee.
Previous governors have gone on the road, though, to announce various pieces of their budget plans before releasing the full proposal.
That's what Scott did Monday when he went The Villages retirement community, also in central Florida, to announce proposals for consolidating some state functions to save money.
Scott denied that inviting tea party activists would politicize the event.
