Florida FY 2021-22 Budget: Summary by Issue Area

Executive Summary 

Governor Ron DeSantis signed the fiscal year (FY) 2021-22 budget into law on June 2, 2021. The final budget, after $62.5 million in vetoes, totals $101.5 billion, an increase of 10 percent from FY 2020-21. 

This was an unprecedented budget cycle, as the Legislature was faced with a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic and an economic recession. Although the significant influx of federal dollars provided state lawmakers an opportunity to lay the foundation for a truly equitable recovery — one in which all Floridians share in economic gains — the budget falls short in utilizing these funds to their fullest potential.
