Florida Legislature offically headed for overtime


It's official, the Legislature didn't finish on time and is headed for overtime.

The Legislature officially voted just after 9 p.m. to extend the annual 60-day session to a 63-day session in order to complete a new state budget on time.

Both the Senate and House voted officially to extend the annual session to Monday until 11:59 p.m.

The decision to meet on Monday was already in the works days ago because it became clear the Legislature would not have a budget ready to pass by Friday.
