A budget is the ultimate expression of governmental policy because it pointedly shows what the government is supporting financially and therefore, what it is actually doing with the taxpayers' money. However, deciphering the 400 plus page document that encompasses the state budget can be a challenge.  This one–hour presentation, co-hosted by FPI and the League of Women Voters of Hillsborough County, will discuss the Florida state budget process, timelines and actors, and identify opportunities for involvement and advocacy. The hour will include time for questions and comments.
