The 60-day Florida legislative session begins tomorrow and Governor Ron DeSantis will deliver the State of the State address. Governor DeSantis has proposed a 91.4 billion-dollar budget to be presented to the 120 House members and 40 senators. The Governor wants to set minimum teacher salaries at $47,500 a year and he wants to establish a new 300 million-dollar bonus program for teachers and principals. He is also proposing sales-tax holidays for back-to-school shoppers and hurricane preparations. Of course, the House and Senate will make changes to the budget before the session concludes March 13th.
