Two top Florida legislators today spent hours meeting behind closed doors in a last-minute push to reach a deal on health care and a new state budget.
Although no deal was reached, Sen. Tom Lee, a Brandon Republican, said that a “fair amount of progress” was made during the discussions between the House and Senate budget chiefs at the Capitol.
“It was super productive,” said Rep. Richard Corcoran, a Land O’ Lakes Republican. “I think today we moved the ball down the field tremendously. We are moving to resolution.”
