- Crist supports allowing same-sex marriage in Florida and said Florida's current ban is discriminatory. Scott declined to say whether he
considers it discriminatory, but said he supports "traditional marriage."

$36 million for community-based disabled help
Our budget increases funding for persons with disabilities by $36 million to help more disabled people receive community-based services, and $2.5 million for job training. Betty Kay Clements is here today--she is an advocate for persons with
disabilities in the Orlando area. I was honored to meet Betty recently and hear her story about her daughter, Laura Lynne, who has overcome many obstacles with her disability to get a job at Target.
