CFO Patronis Applauds Governor Ron DeSantis 2024 Budget Proposals

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis released a statement following Governor Ron DeSantis’ 2024-25 Focus on Florida’s Future budget recommendations.

CFO Jimmy Patronis said, “Since day one, we have worked to keep Florida families first and 2024 will be no different. Governor Ron DeSantis’ 2024 budget package includes vital measures to support Floridians, including $107 million to continue funding the successful My Safe Florida Home program, $409 million in exemptions on taxes and fees on homeowners insurance policies, and historic investments in economic development including $14.5 billion on Florida’s robust transportation network. The My Safe Florida Home program has been a huge success, helping thousands of Floridians harden their home against storms while saving on insurance costs. With additional tax cuts for policyholders, this is real relief from historic inflation and premium hikes. Washington should take note that in Florida, we live within our means, keep a balanced budget and support our hard working families, our dedicated law enforcement heroes, job creators, and homeowners. I look forward to working with the Governor and the Legislature this session to Keep Florida Free and secure a bright future for the Sunshine State.”
