Florida Legislature Approves Budget, Adjourns Special Session
The Florida Legislature adjourned its three-week-long special session Friday, June 19, 2015 after reaching an agreement on the state’s budget.
Lawmakers returned June 1 after failing to pass a budget during the regular session due to a disagreement over Medicaid expansion.
The bill now rests with Gov. Rick Scott who has 10 days to sign it.
