No Senate budget meeting leaves immigration, Citizens in limboby Dara Kam | April 28th, 2011
The Florida Senate is supposed to hold a budget meeting today to take up four controversial items – an overhaul of Citizens Property Insurance, immigration reform and two abortion measures.
Senate rules require a four hour notice before the meeting can be held. With no notice yet, senators are still trying to work out deals on the contentious insurance and immigration issues.
The possibility of a committee meeting is “looking doubtful right now,” Senate President Mike Haridopolos’ spokesman David Bishop said in an e-mail.
