MIAMI — Florida Gov. Rick Scott was celebrating $400 million in tax cuts approved by the Florida Legislature last week during a "victory tour" through seven major cities.
In South Florida Monday, Scott stopped at a locally owned Cuban-American restaurant. Scott said he was pleased with the tax cuts, despite getting about $300 million less than what he had asked for.
The approved tax cuts include a 10-day, back-to-school tax holiday, which would waive taxes on school supplies and clothes, and a tax exemption for gun club membership fees.
The governor visited Fort Myers, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Pensacola, St. Petersburg and West Palm Beach.
