Just 10 days after Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the 2019-20 state budget, House Speaker José Oliva opened the online portal for 2020-21 budget project requests.
“As we develop the Fiscal Year 2020-21 state budget, it is important that we have complete information for any issues considered for an appropriation,” the Miami Lakes Republican said in a memo to House members on Monday.
“We will continue using the same Appropriations Project Request (APR) process that has been in place the past three years for submission of your project requests,” he added. “The Member APR system will be open for input July 1, 2019.
“There are no major changes to the APR process … Each of you may access the APR request menu through your personal LEAGIS dashboard.
“Key dates and submission deadlines for the Appropriations Project Request process will be communicated at a later time.”
The 2020 Legislative Session begins Jan. 14. Committee weeks begin in September.
