State Senator Says Not Deterred by Vetoes
The glass is a quarter full, not three quarters empty.
That's one state senator's take on how Gov. Rick Scott treated his pet legislation in a slew of vetoes
While Steve Oelrich said he is sorry that funding was cut for the expansion of Santa Fe's Institute of Public Safety, he's happy that other projects were funded.
That includes money for a program that allows Santa Fe College students to pay a fee and then use their student ID's to ride RTS buses; same as University of Florida students.
Though Oelrich is taking the cuts in stride, he said it's crucial that new construction for the law enforcement program become a priority.
