Florida Gov. Rick Scott wants money to start planning to build the state's eighth and ninth nursing homes for veterans.
Scott will announce Monday that he is asking for $7.4 million from state legislators. Scott wants the money to help build a recently-approved home in St. Lucie County as well as two additional homes.
Groundbreaking on the nursing home in St. Lucie County is scheduled to begin later this year. No sites have been chosen for the next two.
