2 The Election Electoral politics are never far removed from the ideas and issues that become bills that are considered and passed during a legislative session. Lawmakers will keep a close eye on their coming elections as they move through the 60-day session, March 4 May 2.
3 Elections 2014 At the state level: The Governor Attorney General Chief Financial Officer Commissioner of Agriculture Half the Senate (all the even numbered districts) and The entire House of Representatives, will stand for election!
4 Budget The economy is slowly recovering and has produced more money for lawmakers to spend. The revised forecast for FY has a projected growth of nearly $1.3 billion (or 4.9 percent) over the FY estimate. This number is expected to be higher as we get closer to session start. Legislators will be able to craft a positive budget but there are challenges ranging from decisions on whether to fund and expand Medicaid, the debate and cost of student testing, funding tax breaks, putting more money in savings accounts and legislators seeking local projects. All will put pressure on the budget process. The FDOE budget and the Governor s budget recommendation calls for an increase above the current year spending. The request includes a continuation of the $480 teacher salary allocation proposal, thus the money becomes a base part of the FEFP.
5 Session Boosts Scott's Campaign The 2014 Legislature ended Friday night, delivering all of Scott's major priorities including a $500 million tax and fee cut, a significant increase in education spending, lower university tuition and two 11th-hour Scott priorities in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants and a medical marijuana bill. Everything he wanted going into this session, he got, Weatherford said. I have every reason to believe this will jump-start him into the election cycle. It s going to be a really successful year for him going forward. "With what we just passed, I see the governor slingshotting out of the session," said Weatherford, who stood behind Scott at the Brandon event.
6 2014 Budget The Legislature passed a record-breaking $77.1 billion budget. A $1.2 billion revenue surplus helped to fund numerous hometown projects. Allocated more than $3 billion to state reserves, and Reduced taxes and fees by $500 million.
