Here's an excerpt
of Florida Unfunded this month's cover story:
"This month Florida Funding examines the main
proposals in Governor Bush’s budget. Of vital interest to the
grant giving and seeking world, it is important to remember
that these are only recommendations. Become informed and
contact your local, city, and state representatives. They
exert influence over the final budget and can express your
concerns on cuts, your concurrence of proposals, and your
organization’s stakes in a given area.
...The proposed spending plan would cut taxes in numerous
areas, including removing a current tax on beer and other
alcoholic beverages sold at bars and restaurants, offer an
extended nine day sales-tax break for clothes and school
supply shopping, and cutting in half state taxes incurred by
investors who own stocks and bonds."
