As Florida lawmakers make the trip back to Tallahassee for the 2009 session, they'll have to figure out a way to take care of the state with less money.
That was focus of discussion at the Village Square gathering at St. John's Episcopal Church in Tallahassee Tuesday night.
Panelists included the CEO of Florida Taxwatch as well as state senators who sit on finance and commerce committees.
People were able to voice their concerns and opinions about President Barack Obama's stimulus package.
"And I think it's great to have money released to everyday people. You know we've already had the bankers get their money. I think it's great that the common everyday person is getting some relief too so," says Jen Robinson, a Village Square participant.
The group also talked about ways to handle Florida's declining revenues, economic downturn and budget cuts.
