Gun Protests Captivate Legislature’s Work
Saturday, 24 February 2018
Saturday, February 24, 2018, Tallahassee – The tragedy in the wake of the Parkland massacre spread to Florida’s capitol this week, redirecting the legislative agenda during a week normally devoted to wrapping-up committee work to ready individual bills for final consideration on the floor. Protests and rallies, together with the attention of national news media, meant less time for lawmakers to work on the one task they are mandated to complete each year by the Constitution: passage of a state government funding plan for FY 2018-19.

Budget Work Dominates Legislature’s Fifth Week
Friday, 09 February 2018
Friday, February 9, 2018, Tallahassee – Lawmakers reached the halfway point of their 60-day annual legislative session on Wednesday of this week, a week otherwise dominated by debate and final passage of each chamber’s state budget spending proposals. Legislators are now in a posture to begin Senate-House negotiations to hammer out the differences between their two plans. Though both are very close to each other in their record $82-billion-odd bottom lines, there are significantly different spending priorities in each that will have to be worked through. Conferees will likely be appointed by both the House speaker and the Senate president next week to begin the negotiations to reach a compromise plan.
