House budget writers on Friday released a $69.2 billion budget package that will become the grist for talks in the weeks ahead as the chamber awaits a counteroffer from the Senate that may be weeks away, reports the News Service of Florida. The House plan includes general revenue funds totaling $24.3 billion, state trust funds totaling $20.4 billion and federal funds totaling $24.5 billion. The budget increases PreK-12 education funding by over $1 billion and includes more than $2.46 billion in reserves. The bill, its implementing and conforming legislation is available here. Senate President Mike Haridopolos, R-Merritt Island, told reporters earlier this week that Senate allocations may not be available for two weeks as budget builders pour over social service funding issues and expected cuts.
