Want to complain to your Florida legislators? My Lawmaker will help you find them
The House on Friday unveiled its proposed $67.1 billion budget — about 1 percent higher than the current year — and the Senate will follow suit Monday. The House plan calls for:
- Slightly boosting public-school spending
- Draining a road-building fund,
- Pulling the plug on the popular Florida Forever land-preservation program
- Cutting by 3 percent the salaries for most state workers.
One thing that will stay intact? The free health insurance premiums that they and 27,000 other state workers enjoy thanks to a $44 million subsidy from taxpayers.
