TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Both chambers of the Florida Legislature are taking up their respective budget proposals during floor sessions this week.
Just four weeks remain before lawmakers end their two-month session, and much of the work ahead will depend on the latest state revenue projections, which are expected to be released Tuesday.
The Senate is considering a $95 billion spending plan, while the House floor will be taking up its $97.1 billion version.
In the coming weeks both versions will have to be aligned, and that’s going to mean lots of give-and-take from both sides.
The governor also has his own spending plan that he wants the Legislature to implement.
