A done deal



Dscn1578_2 House and Senate budget conferees wrapped up the last few bits of unfinished business Monday afternoon before a leaner budget goes to press. Rep. Ray Sansom, R-Destin and Sen. Lisa Carlton, R-Osprey, settled eight relatively minor items, including fixing a courthouse roof and finding an extra $1-million to defray counties' costs of special legislative elections.

With the formality of a final budget vote all that remains this session, attention will quickly shift to Special Session D on property taxes later this month.
