State budget won’t be settled for nearly two weeks

By

The Florida House and Senate will not begin state budget negotiations for at least 11 more days. Talks were expected to begin tomorrow (Thursday) on the two different versions passed by each chamber. However preliminary issues must be resolved first, including how many dollars should be allocated for major sections such as education. Next week the Florida Senate will not be in session and the House will have a scaled back schedule due to Passover and Easter.
