FORT MYERS, Fla. - Governor Rick Scott will visit five Florida cities on Tuesday, June 13, as part of his "Fighting for Florida's Future Victory" tour.

The stop is to celebrate the major wins for Florida families and students during last week's legislative special session. The Governor will be joined by House Speaker Richard Corcoran on several of the tour stops. 

This tour will highlight an all-time high of K-12 per-pupil spending, the establishment of the $85 million Florida Job Growth Grant Fund, full funding for VISIT FLORIDA, and $50 million to kick-start repairs to the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake Okeechobee. Governor Scott fought for these important priorities all year.

Governor Scott will be at Sun Harvest Citrus on 6 Mile Cypress Pkwy. in Fort Myers at 1:15 PM.

He will also be making stops in Miami at 9 a.m., West Palm Beach at 11 a.m., Tampa at 3:30 p.m., and Jacksonville Beach at 6 p.m.
