HB7005 and HB9 are both waiting to be put on the Senate’s agenda. While Speaker Corcoran’s convictions are clear, it remains uncertain as to how the Senate and Senate President Negron feel about Corcoran’s cavalier legislation. Likewise, Speaker Corcoran and the House have been fairly vague on their feelings about Negron’s land buy south of the Okeechobee.
As session wages on and the battle for appropriation money takes place, it will be interesting to see how the convictions of the House Speaker and Senate President intersect, coincide, or collide. Given that Corcoran and Negron both have personal agendas that Governor Scott dislikes, perhaps the two will form some sort of alliance against the executive if he refuses to budge on their projects. Stay tuned.
