DeSantis’s Budget Is Another Step Back For Florida

Tallahassee, Fl. –– On June 21, Governor Ron DeSantis released his vetoes and signed a disastrous budget full of cuts to his corporate and wealthy donors and terrible for the working families of Florida.


Terrie Rizzo, chair of the Florida Democratic Party, called DeSantis’s budget a step backward:


“Republican budgets in Florida have always reflected the same self-serving politics that have defined the past 20 years of GOP rule in our state: slashing investment in our public schools, refusing to fully-fund land buys to protect our environment, and once again failing to expand healthcare and public safety options for Florida families. Today’s DeSantis budget is more of the same.  It’s a budget full of corporate handouts and tax loopholes all paid for by cutting funding to public schools, slashing environmental protection programs, and does nothing to curtail the spiraling healthcare costs which are crippling Florida families.”
