“I was the guy who didn’t veto stuff for FAMU,” Crist said.
Scott has used his veto power to take away three line items that the Florida Legislature voted to give FAMU. He vetoed $2M for Infrastructure/Capital Renewal and $500,000 that would have saved the John A. Mulrennan, Sr. Public Health Entomology Research and Education Center in Panama City in 2011. He also vetoed $1.5M for the Crestview Education Center in 2012.
The legislature did not approve any line items for FAMU in 2013. But for 2014, Scott permitted FAMU to keep $10M for Phase II of the College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences.
