FLORIDA- House Democrats unveil alternate budget, with tax increases, rebates

TALLAHASSEE — Florida House Democrats on Wednesday released an alternate budget plan, with plans that include $1.8 billion in additional revenues received through closing tax loopholes and taxing online sales.

The “New Sunshine Deal” would use about $524 million of those revenues to give low-income families an average $500 tax rebate. House Democratic Leader Kionne McGhee of Miami said the plan was designed to focus on working families that Republican leaders have ignored.

“Over the last 20 years the state budget has doubled while leaving hard working Floridians in the shadows,” McGhee said.
