Florida Senate, house move toward budget conference


Work continued in the Florida Senate last week, with the Senate meeting on the Floor on Friday, in addition to committee meetings throughout the week.

One of the focal points of the week was the continuing preparations for the conference process.

With both the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives passing their chambers’ respective budgets last week, the formal conference process can now begin.

Within the conference process, the differences between the two chambers’ budgets will be worked out and a final budget will be produced for approval by both the Florida Senate and the Florida House of Representatives before it is sent to the governor for his approval.

I am proud to be a part of the General Government Appropriations Conference. As Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environmental Preservation and Conservation, I look forward to advocating for funding to deal with the issues facing our springs.

This past week, it was also great to be visited by so many from the district, advocating for and agains bills, and bringing funding priorities to me.

As always, do not hesitate to contact me if I may ever be of service to you.

It is my honor to serve you in Tallahassee.

Sincerely,
Sen. Charles S. Dean
