TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he has less money now than he did when he first ran for governor.

A multi-millionaire who bankrolled most of his campaign, Scott has reported that his net worth has tumbled from more than $200 million to nearly $84 million.

But Floridians don't have a clear picture about his family finances.

Scott accepts only a $1 a year in salary. He has taken steps that keep his assets shielded from public view. He also has not disclosed the finances of his wife even though she controls the company that owns the jet he uses.

What the governor is doing is legal.

After being questioned by The Associated Press, Scott's office says he plans to release additional information about his finances this week.
