Bold Vision for a Brighter Future

2019 Budget Logo Circle

Governor Ron DeSantis' total recommendation for the Fiscal Year 2019-2020 Bold Vision for a Brighter Future budget is $91.3 billion. Florida’s ability to be able to grow and prosper is due in no small part to having one of the best transportation systems in the country. From our top-ranked roads to our record setting seaports and international airports, our state’s transportation system allows for the safe and timely movement of people and goods from one place to another. Still, the nature and speed of Florida’s growth means we must continue to make significant investments in our transportation infrastructure to relieve traffic congestion, ensure efficiency and improve safety. The Bold Vision for a Brighter Future budget provides $9.92 billion for the State Transportation Work Program. The Work Program is based on a five-year plan for the implementation and completion of transportation infrastructure projects throughout the state.
