Florida’s Senate president, Jeff Atwater, R-Palm Beach, has announced the creation of a new Senate Budget Office to provide greater oversight of legislative expenditures.

The SBO will report to the chair of the Senate Ways and Means Policy Steering Committee and will provide independent analyses of state agency operations, including overlapping agency jurisdictions and functions, the financial structure of agencies, sources and uses of revenue, expenditure patterns, and whether programmatic performance measures exist and are being met.
