Florida Gov. Rick Scott signs budget, vetoes nearly $500 million

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said he was upset over the governor’s decision.

“We are obviously disappointed, but will continue to work with our partners to develop a UCF/Valencia campus in Downtown Orlando,” he said in a statement sent to Local 6.  “This new campus will bring significant economic impact to our entire region creating more than 4,000 jobs and generating $180 million in wages each year while preparing the workforce of tomorrow and transforming the future of Downtown Orlando and the Parramore community.”

Here are other Central Florida projects vetoed by the governor on Tuesday:
