Rick Scott to unveil budget in Jacksonville Tuesday – Florida Politics (blog)
Florida Gov. Rick Scott comes back to Jacksonville Tuesday, where he will unveil his final budget.
Of course, some hints have already been provided.
Scott has already touted an ambitious (at least by recent standards) spate of environmental spending.
The $1.7 billion of “historic investments” in the environment, $220 million over the current year’s levels.
The budget proposal has something for most constituencies: $50 million for state parks; $55 million for springs; $100 million for beaches; $355 million for Everglades restoration; $50 million for Florida Forever.
Scott also is proposing $180 million in tax cuts, including cuts in back-to-school sales taxes, disaster prep taxes, and driver’s license fees.
