U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, former Florida Governor, unveiled his plan for improving security and infrastructure at ports in Florida during a visit to the Port of Palm Beach on Monday.

The senator held a news conference to highlight his Fighting For Florida budget, which includes more than $140 million to improve security and infrastructure at ports in Florida.

Town of Palm Beach Mayor Gail Coniglio and Town Manager Kirk Blouin were there.

“We love all the jobs that are created, whether it’s for the cruise industry, manufacturing industry, or people working around our ports,” said Sen. Scott. They are good paying jobs.”

The senator said in his eight years as governor of Florida, the state invested $1.4 billion into the 15 sea ports in the Sunshine State. Because of that, he said, ten of the fastest-growing ports in the U.S. are located in Florida.
