Gov. Rick Scott wants state agencies to account for every dollar.
During the 2010 campaign he said: "Rick will institute Accountability Budgeting. He will make each state agency set annual goals for every dollar they spend, then measure their performance against those goals and hold them accountable for their outcomes."
So is there a dollar-for-dollar defense by every state agency?
To answer briefly, no. The Legislature hasn't shown any interest.
We rated Scott's promise In the Works after he proposed accountability budgeting in 2011. The Legislature wasn't interested, and for the 2012-13 year, Scott proposed an accountability budget for three state agencies as a pilot.
The Legislature failed to adopt it, Scott spokesman John Tupps told PolitiFact Florida.
"Gov. Scott works very closely with each state agency to justify expenditures before they go into his recommended budget,” Tupps wrote in an email.
When it comes to campaign promises, we rate the promises based on outcomes, not intentions. The Legislature has shown they don't intend to adopt accountability budgeting. So we rate this Promise Broken.
