Florida Governor Rick Scott joined us live on Good Morning Tampa Bay on Thursday morning. 

The possibility of military base closures is heating up in Washington, DC and the Florida House has passed a bill that would effectively end the Florida Defense Alliance, a nonprofit group that protects 20 military installations across the state, including MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. 

Governor Rick Scott told ABC Action News Anchor James Tully he's traveling the state so that everyone knows the importance of Florida Defense Alliance and Enterprise Florida. 

On Thursday morning he will host a roundtable with community leaders in Tampa to discuss economic development and jobs programs that the Florida House voted to eliminate.

The military roundtable will take place at 9 a.m. at the VFW Post 424 Tampa located at 105 West Broad Street in Tampa. The roundtable is not open to the public.
