The 2023 regular legislative session adjourned sine die early on Friday, May 5. Lawmakers voted on a record-breaking $117 billion budget, supporting a variety of new and continued initiatives. Increased per-pupil funding, $2.7 billion in tax cuts, and the creation of the Hurricane Ian and Nicole Grant Recovery Program are just some of what’s included in the balanced budget. 

In total, 1,873 bills were filed this session, of which 356 passed. Of the 356, major policy changes include expansion of CTE and work-based learning in the K-12 system, universal charter school vouchers for Florida students, and the creation of various funding and workforce programs to continue addressing Florida’s teacher shortage.
