Governor Ron DeSantis today signed the 2019-2020 Budget, which includes victories for Florida’s students, families, educators and workforce. Among the most significant are securing parents’ rightful place in the driver’s seat of their children’s education; increased funding to keep schools safe and reward high-quality educators; and the creation of life-changing pathways for Florida’s future workforce.
Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said, “This was one of the best legislative sessions in Florida’s history, thanks to a unified commitment to making Florida #1 across the board. As we celebrate Governor Ron DeSantis signing the budget, we are witnessing his bold vision come to fruition with tremendous benefits for the people of Florida. We have already set our sights on next session, and we will ardently advocate for policy improvements that will propel Florida even further.”
