Special Session Set for June 1

Special Session Set for June 1

After one of the strangest finishes to a regular session that we’ve seen, the Florida legislature will convene in a special session starting June 1 to deal with the budget and potentially other issues.  The special session will begin June 1 and will conclude by June 20, with the possibility that it could end earlier if the House and Senate can reach agreement on the budget.

The legislature must pass a budget each year.  The state’s next fiscal year begins July 1, so the legislature will need to reach an agreement in June to avoid shutdowns or other complications.

Although topics other than the budget can be raised in the call of a special session, it is not yet clear whether the legislature will consider any non-budget issues.
