Florida Legislature, Week Two

Monday kicks off week two for the Florida Legislature. Education and taxes are always hot topics on the floor.

Another item touched on during week one is naming an official pie for the state of Florida.

Some residents think the pie discussion is irrelevant and legislatures should focus on more pressing issues.

Randy Vickers, a Florida resident, says, "It's silly; they shouldn't be spending time on things like that because there are so many more pressing issues."

Richard Murphy, Jr., a Florida resident, says, “Education is one of them. How we're going to do about spending money on education. We need to really work on not making the taxpayers have to pay for it, learn to budget."

Another topic being addressed with urgency is giving Floridians tax breaks on certain hurricane readiness items the week before hurricane season.
