TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) _ Gov. Rick Scott has signed 27 bills besides the state budget including legislation to loosen class size limits.
Scott on Thursday also vetoed five bills. One of those would have abolished the Correctional Medical Authority that oversees health care in state prisons.
The class size bill will reduce the number of core courses covered by the limits from 849 to 304.
Another provision will let schools add up to three more students in some classes and as many as five in others after an annual count is taken.
Scott also signed a bill that would make bestiality a crime in Florida.
Other vetoed measures also would have made changes in state agencies.
