Gov. Rick Scott spoke today at the American Association of Port Authorities' annual convention held at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes earlier today, announcing that he will be seeking state lawmakers to approve a $35 million project to revitalize Florida's ports in an effort to bring more cargo-shipping and manufacturing jobs to the state.
Port Canaveral would get $9.7 million, Port Everglades would get $14.7 million, and the Port of Tampa would get $10.7 million. Canaveral would use the money in the second phase of its cargo terminal development, Everglades would use the funds for a project that would lengthen the existing deepwater turning area for cargo ships, and Tampa would use their $10.7 million to improve its container yard.
"There will be a significant amount of additional shipments that will come to the East Coast rather than go to the West Coast," Gov. Scott said. "By investing now — when, as you've heard, the federal government's not doing their job by investing — we have the opportunity to get companies to expand here, grow here, and that's what we're going to continue to do."
