As the Florida Legislature takes another stab with a 20-day Special Session, Kevin Cate is once again taking bets on when the 2015-2016 state spending plan will be approved.
By the Florida Constitution, lawmakers must pass a budget by June 30, and the special session is scheduled through June 20.
This time, its #CateBudget, where the owner of public relations firm CATECOMM has a “little overtime fun” by calling for a best guess when the “last chamber” passes a budget estimated at nearly $80 billion.
Prior to 6 p.m. Thursday, Cate asked for a time and date posted on Twitter, with the hashtag #CateBudget.
The grand prize winner will get a “major shout out or feature” on Trimmel Gomes’ Rotunda Podcast.
Cate is no stranger to amateur political bookmaking. In April, he promoted the #CateSineDie tag, where Twitter followers attempted to predict when lawmakers would adjourn the 2015 Legislative Session.
No word on which person guessed “three days early” on that one.
