Developer Appointed As Planning Director

In a controversial move, new Florida Governor Rick Scott has appointed Billy Buzzett, vice-president at a development company, to lead the state's Department of Community Affairs.

Gov. Scott is reportedly "eager to overhaul" the agency.

Michael C. Bender reports:

"Environmentalists see the appointment of Buzzett as another sign that Scott - in his quest to create jobs and spur Florida's economy - will allow developers to run rampant over the state's natural resources. On Monday, Scott appointed a shipbuilding executive as his top environmental regulator."
