Tallahassee Lawmakers Prep For Last Day Of 2014 Legislative Session
Posted Friday, May 2nd 2014 @ 4am

Today is the last day of the 2014 legislative session...and lawmakers still have plenty of bills to pass.

But the biggest thing on the table Friday is a final vote on the state's proposed $77-billion dollar budget.

Barry University Political Science Professor Sean Foreman says don't be surprised if the Governor makes a few changes to it.

"He has some time to think about it and he could take out projects that he sees are wasteful," says Foreman "or maybe that are in districts of legislators who are his opponents."

Another big measure being considered today is the medical marijuana amendment.

It passed the House with some changes Thursday, and is on its way back to the Senate for final approval.

Surprisingly, Governor Rick Scott announced he would sign it if it reaches his desk. He's running for re-election this year, and is also supporting an in-state tuition bill for illegal immigrants.
