Florida Gov. Rick Scott has proposed consolidations and streamlining he says will save the state $1 billion over two years.
The new Republican governor announced his plans at The Villages,
a north-central Florida retirement community.
Scott said his budget proposal to the Legislature will include
moving growth management functions from the Department of Community Affairs to other agencies.
He also wants to shift the licensing and regulation of drugs, medical devices and cosmetics from the Department of Health to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
Another proposal is to transfer alcoholic beverage tax collection from Business and Professional Regulation to the Revenue
Department.
