On Tuesday, Senate Budget Committee Chair J.D. Alexander again queried Gov. Scott regarding the legal basis for the governor's sale of the state's two airplanes, demanding all written records relating to the sale. The two state airplanes were sold on February 11 for $3.7 million to out-of-state bidders. Shortly after the sale of the airplanes, Sen. Alexander objected, noting that it is “the Legislature's constitutional duty to appropriate funds and your duty to spend appropriated funds in accordance to law.” The heart of the dispute centers on the use of the proceeds from the sale, which were used to pay off the lease on one of the airplanes, without first depositing the funds into the state treasury.
