The 2020 Florida Legislative Session has come to an end, as both the House and Senate voted to pass the $93.2 billion budget on Thursday for the upcoming fiscal year. And according to Florida Cattlemen’s Association (FCA) Director of Governmental Affairs, Sam Ard, overall agriculture did very well. But he also knows Lawmakers are already focused on a potential need to revisit the spending plan this summer as the coronavirus upends the economy.

So again, the Florida Legislative Session has ended after lawmakers passed the budget for the 2020-2021 fiscal year, which starts July 1.
