The governor wants to build three new, state-run nursing homes just for veterans.

Florida already operates six veterans’ homes with a total of 720 beds, but there are 700,000 veterans over the age of 65 in the state.

The Florida Cabinet already approved one of the new facilities for St. Lucie County. But Gov. Scott added two more to his legislative wish list.
