February 26, 2013 | WMFE – One week from today the state legislature will officially begin its annual 60-day legislative session. Economic analyst Hank Fishkind says many of the proposals under consideration in Tallahassee this year will have economic impacts here in central Florida.
Next week Dr. Fishkind will discus some of the legislative proposals that will directly impact us here in central Florida. This week, he analyzed Gov. Rick Scott’s $74 billion dollar budget proposal. If approved, it would be a $4 billion dollar increase in spending, the largest increase in more than a decade and a surplus of more than $1 billion dollars. WMFE’s Tom Parkinson asked Fishkind how we got to this point.
