BRADENTON, Fla. — The Florida Legislature ended its 60-day session late Friday after passing a $70 billion budget for fiscal 2013.

If approved without line-item vetoes by Gov. Rick Scott, the budget would be 1% higher than the current spending plan. The biggest increase will be in the general revenue fund, which totals $24.8 billion, or $1.6 billion higher than this year’s budget.
