Rick Scott's 2011 Budget Vetoes

It is easy to see why some Republicans are angry at Gov. Rick Scott for surprisingly proclaiming his support for K-12 education. Scott's budget veto list is filled with education cuts. One education veto I am happy to see is the Dan Marino Foundation vocational school. Marino is a celebrity and can go to private donors for the funding. My understanding is the vocational school is to give work skills training to the disabled. I don't doubt Marino has noble intentions. It is just hard to justify Marino's school getting $500,000 when teachers will be facing layoffs and the state won't be making the requiements for smaller class sizes.

Below are Scott's vetoes. Click the link at the top of the pdf file for bigger text.
