TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Florida Gov. Rick Scott is vetoing $410 million in projects from the new state budget.
Scott announced Friday that as part of a budget deal reached with state legislators he is going to veto individual spending items instead of vetoing the entire $82.4 billion budget.
The money will be used to pay for some of Scott's top priorities and to boost money for public schools.
Legislators will return for a special session next week where they are expected to approve spending $100 more for each public school student. The budget approved in May only increased student funding by $24 more.
The governor had been threatening to veto the entire budget after lawmakers slashed money to the state's tourism marketing agency.
The session is scheduled for June 7 through June 9.
