That includes measures on abortion, gender identity instruction in public schools, grandparent visitation and Florida citrus.  Plus, the $109.9 billion budget that contains a state gas tax exemption that takes place in October and several other sales tax holidays.  The tax breaks will save Floridians a record $1.24 billion through the next fiscal year.
