Florida lawmakers consider one more public budget meeting

in Statewide/Top Headlines by

Florida legislators are considering another public meeting on the state’s budget language before finalizing the agreement Tuesday.

Lobby Tools is reporting Monday that Senate budget chief Jack Latvala and Carlos Trujillo, his House counterpart, said that the joint appropriations committee would not meet again, so it’s not clear who will be involved in the meeting, or when it will take place.

“The full approps committee is not meeting again,” Trujillo told reporters. “So, the issues that bump go to the presiding officers and they’ll decide the remaining issues.”

According to LobbyTools, the House speaker and Senate president do not traditionally hold public meetings.
