Gov. Ron DeSantis’ budget full of corporate handouts

To the Editor:

Republican budgets in Florida have always reflected the same self-serving politics that have defined the past 20 years of GOP rule in our state: slashing investment in our public schools, refusing to fully-fund land buys to protect our environment, and once again failing to expand healthcare and public safety options for Florida families.
Gov. Ron DeSantis’ budget is more of the same. It’s a budget full of corporate handouts and tax loopholes all paid for by cutting funding to public schools, slashing environmental protection programs, and does nothing to curtail the spiraling healthcare costs which are crippling Florida families.
