TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Gov. Rick Scott is set to introduce new policies focused on small businesses and entrepreneurs.

On Tuesday, Scott will be in Miami to start a two-week statewide tour highlighting his proposals to reduce corporate filing fees for small businesses and increasing funding for export marketing programs.

He’ll also announce a $10 million “Risk Taker Award” that he says will reward entrepreneurs and small businesses for developing solutions to specific issues with private capital. Scott also proposes establishing annual business competitions hosted by Florida’s colleges and universities that would award winners up to $100,000.

In a statement Monday from his re-election campaign, Scott called small businesses “the lifeblood of our economy.”
