Welcome back to OnThePoint.  This is Greg C. Truax.

Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed the new state budget. It’s a $116.5 billion plan,  a responsible reduction in state spending.

The state budget makes significant investments in Florida’s top priorities while importantly ensuring $17 billion in budgetary reserves.

Key highlights include substantial tax relief for citizens totaling  $1.5 billion, plus $450 million in toll relief.

It also strengthens our top-ranked education system, supports law enforcement, enhances disaster preparedness, and promotes economic development and environmental conservation.

Thanks to the governor, Florida has reduced its tax-supported state debt by over 36 percent.
