Tallahassee, Florida (AP) --

A new survey shows most Floridians are willing to support tax increases for public schools and health and human services even in these troubled economic times.

The Pew Center on the States released results Wednesday, October 6 for surveys in Florida and four other states ranked as the nation's
most fiscally stressed.

The Florida survey also shows residents almost evenly split on
raising taxes for universities and colleges.

Most, though, are unwilling to pay higher taxes for prisons,
highways and other transportation programs.

The telephone survey was taken in June. It included 1,003 adult
Floridians and has an error rate of plus or minus 4 percentage
points.

Other states surveyed are California, New York, Illinois and
Arizona.
