Scott told the paper that he thought several groups that were surprised by vetoes of budget line items last year made better cases this year. “One of the groups that did well coming back with more information this year was public television stations,” Scott said. “I said, ‘Go back and show us that there was a return on the money we are spending.’ And they did.” Scott vetoed nearly $5 million for public broadcasting last year, leaving PBS TV stations without state money for the first time in three decades. The governor has until April 21 to sign the $70 billion budget, but can veto individual line items. The budget on the governor’s desk earmarks about $300,000 for each of Florida’s 13 public TV stations.
