The budget comes in at $82.418 billion.
With the release of the fiscal year 2017-18 budget, lawmakers now have 72 hours to read the final proposed budget prior to voting. Florida TaxWatch played an instrumental role in the enactment of the constitutionally required 72 hour "cooling off" period. This allows the public, press and legislators ample time to examine the budget before a vote is cast. The $82.418 billion state budget will fund various state agencies and critical services for all Floridians.
