Veto USF, Dali projects, group tells Bush

Taxwatch questions how the so-called turkeys got into the state's $63.1-billion budget.

TALLAHASSEE - Florida Taxwatch urged Gov. Jeb Bush Friday to veto $4-million for the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg and almost $10-million in projects at the University of South Florida in Tampa.

They were among $250-million in projects that Taxwatch says got into the state's $63.1-billion budget without adequate review.

Taxwatch President Dominic Calabro said the so-called budget turkeys might be worthy but questioned how they got into the state spending plan.

Bush plans to sign the budget and issue a list of vetoes late next week.

The money for the Dali will be there, Mayor Baker is working on a deal to make park of the project a 7 acre public park on the waterfront. I can't wait to see what the plans look like, should be nice.
