Florida Gov. Rick Scott has signed into law a new $77 billion budget.
The vetoes included money for dozens of hometown projects sought by legislators including money for a Miami observation tower and a dog park.
The overall budget is roughly 3.5 percent higher than last year's budget and includes a boost in money for schools, child welfare and projects to battle water pollution.
Legislators came into this year's session with a $1.2 billion budget surplus. They used some of the extra money on dozens and dozens of hometown projects.
