TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott is vetoing nearly $400 million from the state's new budget.
Scott on Monday signed the $74.1 billion budget into law.
But he also axed a whole line of project sprinkled in the budget including millions for college buildings, health care programs and even money for supplemental programs for veterans.
Scott also vetoed a 3 percent tuition hike for college and university students and $50 million for a multi-use trail that would cross the state.
The Republican governor still praised the overall budget, by noting it boosts spending on education.
This year marked the first time in years that legislators had a budget surplus to work with.
Some of Scott's vetoes took aim at fellow Republicans including Senate President Don Gaetz.
