The 2019 Budget Turkey Watch Report


Florida TaxWatch released its “2019 Budget Turkey Watch Report,” promoting additional oversight and integrity in the state’s budgeting process.

The report is based on the principle that because money appropriated by the Legislature belongs to the taxpayers of Florida, the process must be transparent and accountable, and every appropriation should receive proper deliberation and public debate.
