Dueling Videos Package Script

As the Florida legislature gets ready to start its annual session a week from Tuesday, there is a bitter divide between the House Speaker and the Governor over funding the state’s  tourism and business marketing arms. As Mike Vasilinda tells us the latest chapter is dueling videos.

Anchor tag: The House Speaker calls the debate over incentives spirited and while tense, useful and important.

Dueling Videos Package Script:

Rick Scott is making the incentives fight personal.

“ and one of them is your state rep, right here.”

After 9 GOP House members voted to strip Visit and Enterprise Florida of funding, Scott went to their districts to pressure their constituents.

Sot: Rick Scott

Governor

“How could anybody saw we are going to turn our backs on jobs?”

House Speaker Richard Corcoran responded with a video criticizing the incentives.

Nat sot of video:

“Executive salaries went from eight hundred thousand five hundred dollars to to one point four million over the past six years.”

Now the Governor is responding in kind.

“If we quit marketing this state, we’re in big trouble.”

Asked about the personal attack, the House Speaker says he won’t punch back.

Sot: Rep. Richard Corcoran

House Speaker

If Governor Scott poked me in the Chest, I would take it, um, ten out of ten times. He’s been avery good man to me and my family.”

Mike Vasilinda

The first sign of compromise came this past week when the House voted to keep Visit Florida, but they still want to scrap a job incentives program.”

A powerful House committee is suggesting giving visit florida 25 million..a third of what was spent last year. The compromise was due in large part to pressure from people like  Carol Dover. She’s the CEO of the restaurant and Lodging association.

“I spent years on the Visit Florida board when we were at 25 million, and we could not the ceiling of 82, 84, 85 million tourists. We now have additional funding. Where are we. We’re at 112 million visitors.”

And any level of funding is guaranteed to come with a catch: increased oversight.

VO/SOT: Gaming Follo

Headlines across the state this morning screamed House and Senate at odds over gambling plans. Both Chambers are advancing differing measures. The Senate would like to allow slots in the 8 counties that have approve them, add some blackjack in South Florida and get a new deal with the Seminole Tribe. The House is more interested in a new seal with the Tribe. But House Speaker Richard Corcoran does’t think the two chambers are “at odds”.

Sot: Rep. Richard Corcoran

R-Pasco County

House Speaker

“I don’t think you have ever seen a House and a Senate both moving bills, abbot different, this early. I think that prognosticates the potential we could see resolution there.”

The biggest driver of a gambling deal this year is the need for increased state revenues without raising taxes.
