Crist to Make Budget Recommendations

December 22nd, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist will make his budget cutting recommendations on Tuesday. The Governor is expected to suggest sweeping some cash from trust funds coupled with existing hold backs to cover most of the states 2.3 billion dollar revenue shortfall.
It does not appear the governor will be recommending any new revenue sources or tax increases.
I think the policy of trying to keep taxes low is important to do, and I know thats a policy that Florida has had for a long time. And Im pleased about that, Crist said. I think well need to continue with that as much as we possibly can because, if ever there was a time to make sure people have more of their own money in their pocket, that would be now it would seem to me.

State lawmakers are due back at the state capitol on January 5th for a special budget cutting session.
