State Legislators Prepare Final Work on State Budget

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (970 WFLA)- Negotiators from the Florida House and Senate are meeting in the state capitol today to begin work on a final budget compromise. House Speaker Will Weatherford says there aren't than many major philosophical differences between the house and senate budgets... so don't sweat the small stuff. 

They have less than three weeks to come up with a final version of the 74 billion dollar budget. Senate President Don Gaetz says relations between the chambers are very cordial, so he don't expect the sort of throw-downs, usual hostage-taking and brinksmanship that are usually part of the budget negotiations
