Florida Adjourns Legislative Session
The Florida Legislature adjourned the 2017 regular session on Monday, May 8, 2017.
Lawmakers extended the session an extra day after failing to reach an agreement on the state budget, despite Republican majorities in both houses.
The $82.4 billion budget was $1.1 billion less than Gov. Rick Scott’s proposal, leaving open the possibility of at least a partial veto.
A special session also remains possible to deal with implementing the medical marijuana amendment passed by voters last year.
