9 Investigates Gov. Scott connection to oil, gas drilling company!
Monday, June 16, 2014
When he last filed paperwork in 2013 with the Commission on Ethics,
Gov. Rick Scott listed his personal fortune at more than $83 million.
Part of that fortune is tied up in Scott’s blind trust,
an account managed for Scott, but without his involvement.
While the name implies a separation from the governor,
Scott is still aware of what companies he owned when the trust was created, including oilfield services company Schlumberger.
According to records obtained by Eyewitness News, at the time of the creation of the blind trust in 2010,
Scott owned $135,343 of stock in Schlumberger.
Schlumberger is now working with a company drilling for oil and natural gas in south Florida, near the Everglades.
Since Dec. 1, 2012, the Department of Environmental Protection has
issued six permits to the Dan A. Hughes Company to explore parts of Collier County for oil and natural gas.

Florida House passes bill to study, regulate fracking
The House voted 73-45 in favor of the bill (HB 191) after more than an hour of debate, with only a handful of Republicans joining Democrats in opposition.
The bill calls for the Department of Environmental Protection to conduct a $1 million study on how fracking would affect surface and groundwater and underground geology and then set regulations for the fracking industry. It will also look at how water and chemicals will be disposed of and any potential for contamination once a well has been plugged.
