Gov. DeSantis signs $90.9B budget

Touting spending on issues such as education and the environment, Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday said he signed a $90.9 billion budget for the fiscal year that starts July 1. 

DeSantis said he vetoed about $131 million from the budget passed by lawmakers May 4. 

“I think it’s a fiscally responsible budget. I think we put taxpayers first,” he said during an afternoon news conference in the Capitol.
