Transportation Freeze Thawed

January 13th, 2011 by flanews

Governor Rick Scott is releasing more than 70 transportation contracts one day after Democrats complained his freeze on large contracts was slowing job creation.

The contracts are worth 90 million dollars. Scott wanted to make sure the money was being spent wisely. He still has other contracts under the microscope.

We are reviewing the contracts of over a million dollars. We have released contracts through the Department of Transportation, but we are going to continue to look how the money is spent. Part of my job is to make sure we watch how, your money, its taxpayers money. My job, is Im going to watch out how its spent, said Scott.

Scott ordered the freeze on his first day in office. Its scheduled to last 80 more days.
