Associated Press Release
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott is disclosing more details on his finances in order to make sure he is complying with a new state law.
The multi-millionaire governor on Friday turned in to the state's ethics commission a lengthy list of assets he placed in a blind trust more than two years ago.
Scott established the trust to remove direct control over his finances. But when he set the trust up he was not required to disclose what his money was invested in.
A new state law says that public officials who set up blind trusts must disclose the initial assets placed in it.
Scott's general counsel said the governor is doing that now in "abundance of caution."
Scott's net worth as of last December was nearly $84 million.
