Committees to Meet Again on Balancing Florida's Budget

Several appropriations committees are meeting again today looking for ways to avoid a $2.3 billion deficit before a special legislative session to revise the budget next month.

Legislative committees are discussing potential budget cuts that likely will include health and human services.

Agencies have been asked to suggest ways to absorb a 10 percent cut, although reductions are unlikely to be that high.

Budget leaders in both chambers have yet to decide how much they want to cut from each part of the budget
