Florida Gov. Rick Scott met with workers at the state Department of Transportation Monday.
He told the employees he's heard great things about their agency.
Scott also explained the DOT is boosting Florida's economy and adding jobs.
"Find ourselves in a position that we've got to fix. And so, that's what we're trying to do every day. So, if you're a high-speed rail enthusiast, I'm not your best friend today, 'cuz I didn't keep that going last week. But, one thing we got to do, and you get to do it, is make sure that Miami's ready for the Panama Canal expansion. So, thank you very much for doing that. Because that sends a message that we're open for business. It sends a message to the other ports on the East Coast. It sends a message to shippers around the world that Florida is going to be a state that is going to be a place that people can build their shipping destinations, and we'll get a lot more traffic through here. And it's also going to create 33-thousand permanent jobs."
During Q and A, one worker asked why the state determines how much of worker salaries is contributed to retirement plans. Scott promised to look into the matter.
