Budget negotiators for both the Florida
House and Senate say they are getting closer to agreeing on a
compromise spending plan after meeting over the weekend.
Lawmakers on Sunday ironed out details for a South Florida
prison-privatization plan and budget caps for the state's water
management districts. That would save more than $200 million.
Still in negotiation are changes to state workers' health
insurance. Legislators discussed creating four levels of
employee-benefit options for state workers that would be priced
accordingly. That would happen by 2013.
Lawmakers also met late Sunday to hear information about several
college and university construction projects.
