Florida Departments of Juvenile Justice, Education, Children & Families Submit 2010-2011 Legislative Budget Requests

Oct 19, 2009

The Florida Departments of Juvenile Justice, Education and Children & Families were among state agencies to submit their Legislative Budget Requests (“LBR”) to Florida Governor Charlie Crist during the week of October 12-16.  In a letter this year, Governor’s Office officials cautioned agencies to be cognizant of the State’s deficit while preparing their budgets.

Governor Crist will use the LBRs as a guideline in formulating his proposed budget, which then will be presented to the Legislature in January, 2010.  As provided by Florida’s Constitution, the Legislature will use the Governor’s budget as a guideline in determining the 2010-2011 State Budget.
