House Speaker Rubio Wants Education to be a Priority

September 18th, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

With the special session scheduled to begin October 3rd, House Speaker Marco Rubio met with reporters in Tallahassee answering questions about what he hopes gets accomplished.

He says some progress has been made in reducing the state’s one billion dollar budget shortfall but added funding for education is just one of a number of issues.

“On the issue of education and what will happen with the property taxes, I think funding education in the state is a priority. You’ll see that in the spending reductions I’m confident you’re going to see that reflected there. But I also think that everyone needs to understand that this state has very serious cost of living crisis, and one of the leading causes is property taxes. We need to deal with it in a meaningful way. That is what January 29h is about and I hope the next session will be about as well. “

Rubio was cautious about the possibility of adding PIP to the special session call, but admitted it must be fixed sometime.
