Florida TaxWatch Applauds House Speaker-Designate Richard Corcoran for His Support of More Transparency in Budgeting Process

Statement from Florida TaxWatch President and CEO Dominic M. Calabro

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - For nearly four decades, Florida TaxWatch has called for transparency in the budget process with our annual “turkey list” which highlights items that were inserted into the state budget with no opportunity for public review.
 

We commend House Speaker-Designate Corcoran’s efforts to increase accountability and transparency in the budget process.   His goal of making sure every appropriation that is placed in the budget be scrutinized and debated is one we share.  Floridians deserve assurance that their money is being invested in critical needs and projects that provide the best return.

The Sunshine State is best served when elected leaders put hard-working Floridians first in every step of the legislative process. We look forward to working with Speaker-Designate Corcoran, Senate President-Designate Joe Negron and all lawmakers in the months ahead to develop a efficient and effective process to improve budgeting in Florida.
