Tallahassee, FL- With the conclusion of the 2017 Legislative Session, Representative McClain is proud of the unified approach House members took with their fellow House members to solve important issues that affect every day Floridians. He helped to pass meaningful tax cuts including an increase in the Homestead Tax Exemption, which is projected to save Floridians about $644.7 million, because Floridians are better stewards of their dollar than the government. Representative McClain also stood against corporate welfare and supported Florida’s future by voting to increase K-12 spending.
“At the end of Session it was good to see Tax Exemptions and a budget passed that we can work from without causing unnecessary debt, as a fiscal conservative, I can stand behind that.”
In addition, Representative McClain, filed the appropriations request for the City of Belleview’s Reduction of Nutrient Loading Input to Groundwater (HB 2251), which was approved in the final budget (SB 2500 – Appropriations 764844) for $300,000.
“We worked hard on this budget and legislative priorities for your district aren’t always rewarded but in this case we are blessed that the City of Belleview got what they asked for.”
Representative McClain is honored to serve District 23 and looks forward to continuing his work of fighting for its citizens.
