ELEMENTARY SCHOOL WAS LOCKED DOWN FOR A TIME BUT THAT LOCKTOWN HAS BEEN LIFTED.

HE IS PITCHING A BIG TAX CUT THAT SHOULD SAVE VIRTUALLY EVERYONE IN FLORIDA MONEY BEGINNING THIS SUMMER.

GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT UNVEILED A PLAN TO REDUCE TAXES ON CELL PHONE AND TV BILLS.

WESH 2'S GREG FOX JOINS US NOW.

HOW MUCH ARE WE TALK BFRJTS $470 MILLION.

SCOTT SAYS THE SAVINGS ARE AIMED AT HELPING FAMILIES WHO ARE STRUGGLING.

THE QUESTION IS, WILL HE GET WHAT HE WANTS SO THAT YOU CAN ENJOY THOSE SAVINGS? TYPICAL PERSON THAT SPENDS ABOUT $100 A MONTH THEY'LL GET $40 A YEAR IN SAVINGS.

IT'S ONE OF HIS LARGEST TAX CUT PROPOSALS TO DATE.

AND ONE THAT'S AIMED AT THE CONSUMER.

RICK SCOTT ANNOUNCED IN LAKE MARY HE WANTS TO SLASH three.

6 PERCENT FROM THE STATE TAXES ON CABLE TV AND CELL PHONE RATES.

CURRENTLY THE RATE ON NON-RESIDENTIAL LAND LINES, CELL PHONES AND CABLE IS 9.

17 PERCENT.

THE RATE ON SATELLITE SERVICE IS 13.

17 PERCENT.

THE TOTAL TAX CUT IS JUST UNDER HALF A BILLION DOLLARS.

I KNOW YOU CAN SPEND MONEY BETTER THAN THE GOVERNMENT CAN SPEND YOUR MONEY.

I KNOW IF WE CONTINUE TO REDUCE TAXES AND REGULATIONS WE CONTINUE RECRUIT COMPANIES AND GET MORE FLORIDA JOBS.

SCOTT SAYS THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE PROPOSED DECREASE WOULD BE IN STATE TAXES.

MOST OF THIS IS STATE, A SMALL PORTION IS LOCAL.

BUT WE'RE GOING HOLD THEM HARMLESS.

THIS IS PURELY STATE TAXES.

PURELY CUT STATE TAXES.

WON'T CUT ANY TAXES FOR THE COUNTY.

IF I CHOOSE A PATTERN OVERLAY– THE TELECOMMUNICATIONS TAX CUT COMES AT TIME WHEN SCOTT IS ALSO PROPOSING $19.

75 BILLION IN SPENDING FOR Okay-12 EDUCATION INCLUDING RECORD HIGH CLASSROOM SPENDING.

WITH ROUGHLY A BILLION DOLLAR BUDGET SURPLUS,, SCOTT MAY BE PLAYING TUG AWAR WITH LAWMAKERS OVER THE AMOUNT OF CUTS.

THE GOVERNOR'S ANNOUNCEMENT COMES ON THE HEELS OF A RUT KERR'S UNIVERSITY STUDY THAT SHOWS 54 PERCENT OF PEOPLE WORKING IN FLORIDA EARN LESS THAN $15 AN HOUR.
