TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- April 5, 2011 -
Florida Gov. Rick Scott says he's surprised at how long it takes for the Legislature to do its work.
Scott was speaking Tuesday at a press conference after the
Cabinet meeting. He was asked what he had learned in his first few
months on the job.
Scott told reporters he thought "things should happen quicker"
in the Capitol. He mentioned charter school expansion and Medicaid
reform as top priorities for speedy deliberation. The governor
comes from a business and legal background.
He also complimented state workers by saying they don't get the
credit they deserve. Scott has made a point to visit several state
agencies since taking office.
