Floridians pay in the millions for Governor and company's security
FLORIDA -- Floridians are shelling out more money to keep Governor Rick Scott and his visitors safe.
Taxpayers spent more than 2.6 million dollars on security between July 2012 and June 2013.
That is the highest amount in the last eight years.
Part of the the higher total includes fees to protect a long line of republican governors at the Republican National Convention last summer.
But the biggest share of costs was spent on around-the-clock security for Scott and his wife.
