TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

Committees in both chambers will consider about $1 billion in proposed spending cuts Wednesday.

Democrats are angry because Republicans who control the House and Senate have refused to take up revenue increases other than raising court fees and traffic fines during a two-week special session.

House Democratic leader Franklin Sands of Weston says "Republican budget cuts" will harm Florida's families and youngest and most vulnerable citizens.

House Majority Leader Adam Hasner, R-Delray Beach, shot back by accusing Democrats of "partisanship that could doom efforts to balance the state budget."
