TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Oct. 7, 2019) -- Speaker Jose Oliva released the following statement on the Governor's education spending announcements today.
"I am in receipt of the Governor's statement regarding teacher compensation as I am of the over $2B of new spending requests from his agencies. The legislative process will properly vet these among all other state concerns. My initial thought is one of gratitude for those who came before us and saw it fit to bind us and all future legislatures to a balanced budget."
