Scott signs Jaguars' priority legislation

Gov. Rick Scott today signed a bill that was a priority for the Jacksonville Jaguars, as well as professional sports teams across the state. It will no longer allow workers to file worker's compensation claims out-of-state.

The legislation applies to all industries, but was largely pushed by sports teams because their players file claims in other states that give larger payouts.
