TALLAHASSEE – Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law Friday a $1.2 billion package of tax breaks, including the elimination of the state sales tax on diapers for a year, along with four sales tax holidays lasting one or two weeks each.

At Sam’s Club in Ocala, the Republican governor managed to shade the event with politics, touting that the state’s giveaways will help with a “federally induced inflationary spiral,” while warning about a “Biden-induced recession, which I hope doesn’t happen.”

DeSantis did not point out that one of the biggest single reductions in the package — $200 million for eliminating the sales tax on gasoline in October — is paid for with federal dollars from the Biden administration’s “American Rescue Plan.” Drivers ought to see a roughly 25-cent cut then, a month before the November election.
