Legislative Session Debrief, Look Ahead To Special Session
Lawmakers are heading back to Tallahassee on June 1 for a three-week special session.
The Florida Legislature was unable to agree on a single balanced budget during the regular session, which the House sent screeching to a halt three days early.
The divide between the two chambers was sparked by the likely loss of more than $1 billion in federal Low Income Pool money for hospitals that is to set to expire June 30.
