Governor Scott praises decision to shorten furloughs

FLORIDA  --  Governor Rick Scott is praising a decision by the Pentagon to decrease the number of furlough days over the next two months.

Scott has been highly critical of federal budget cuts because it meant that the Florida National Guard was being forced to take furloughs during hurricane season.
Scott called the decision "great news" but said he is concerned about more cuts coming when the new federal budget year starts in October.
