Scott signs repeal of Florida port security law

Gov. Rick Scott has signed a bill repealing a Florida port security law that's no longer needed due to newer federal requirements.

The Republican governor went to Tampa's port to sign the bill (HB 283) into law on Tuesday.

Scott said it would save business interests $3 million annually because truck drivers and port workers no longer will have to undergo duplicative criminal background checks.
