Backroom Briefing: State Spending More than Advertised

July 13, 2017 - 6:00pm

An $82.418 billion budget approved by the Legislature in this spring's regular session was the largest in state history.

But the Tallahassee-based group Florida TaxWatch, puts the final number on spending at $85.158 billion.

“Every session, the Legislature makes a relatively small amount of appropriations in other bills, including funding for agencies to implement new programs authorized by the legislation,” TaxWatch said in a release Thursday. “This session, the Legislature took this to a new level, passing 23 bills with nearly $2.5 billion in additional appropriations.”
