Governor Vetoes $2 Million SkyRise Funding

Governor Rick Scott vetoed $2 million in state funding proposed for SkyRise Miami.

Scott signed a budget today from which he vetoed just $69 million – half of his previous low in vetoed spending, but SkyRise was still a casualty.

The governor’s decision is a setback for lobbyist Ron Book, who was paid up to $49,999 in fees by SkyRise developers.
