TALLAHASSEE — With budget talks between the House and Senate strained, Senate budget chief J.D. Alexander extended an olive branch to House Speaker Dean Cannon on Monday: committee passage of Cannon’s overhaul of the Florida Supreme Court.
Alexander attached Cannon’s court revamp proposal as an amendment to a Senate bill that would give the Legislature greater control over court rules, SJR 2084.
