TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida foster parents would get free annual state park passes under a bill going to Gov. Rick Scott.

The Senate unanimously passed the bill Thursday. It would also give foster families half price discounts on camp sites.

Republican Sen. Aaron Bean said his bill is a way to thank the 5,000 families who are caring for foster children.

Families that adopt a special needs child in the state’s care would receive a one-time annual park pass.
