  • Florida Senate President Andy Gardiner (R-Orlando) and House Speaker Steve Crisafulli (R-Merritt Island) advised on the progress of the 2015 Special Session Budget Conference today, June 9, 2015.

    "Over the last three days, our budget conference committees have worked together to finalize key portions of our state budget. Each committee has made great progress towards finalizing its areas of the budget as well as proviso language and our implementing and conforming bills. With such progress being made at this level, we have authorized our conference committees to continue their work through the close of business this evening. We look forward to continuing this steady progress over the next few days, with the goal of finalizing the budget by early next week."

    The President and Speaker authorized conference committees to continue meeting until 5:00 p.m. this evening, at which point unresolved issues will bump to Senate Appropriations Chair, Senator Tom Lee (R-Brandon) and House Budget Chair, State Representative Richard Corcoran (R-Land O' Lakes), who are expected to begin public meetings tomorrow, June 10.
