Governor Rick Scott unveiled Florida's proposed $79.3 billion 2016-2017 budget on Monday. Scott said he hopes to allocate more money this year and is projecting the state's revenue to increase.
Scott introduced the plan at a small manufacturing business in Jacksonville. He says small business are integral to Florida, because they help diversify the economy and create more jobs.
That's why he says the new budget will call for $1 billion in tax cuts for manufacturers and retailers. Scott also wants over $20 billion to go towards education.
