The Senate has called off a floor session Wednesday and does not plan to meet on the floor this week.
President Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican, sent a memo to senators Sunday saying the next scheduled floor Session is Feb. 21.
“The feedback President Negron received from Senators was that with only one full committee week (Week #7) left, Senators would like to utilize the time to work on their bills,” Senate spokeswoman Katie Betta explained in an email.
“The Senate is typically on the floor for the majority of Week 8 and Week 9, but the time remaining for bills to advance through committees is limited. President Negron wanted to make sure Senators had extra time during this window.”
The House is slated to meet on the floor Wednesday and Thursday. The Session is scheduled to end March 9.
