What’s unknown at the present moment is how patients will be able to use the drug

Five days after Gov.

An effort by Florida's Republican leaders to put aside recent acrimony and reach a new budget deal was falling apart on the eve of a three-day special session.

"Anything at this point will help, but (the governor's proposed increase) is not sufficient to fund education", said Deb Muller, the school district's chief financial officer, adding education dollars continue "to be short of what we've seen in pre-recession funding".

Other UNF projects that are waiting for approval in the state budget is the Science & Engineering Building renovations ($6.4 million), the Advanced Manufacturing & Materials Innovation ($855,000) and the Jax Bridges Competitive Small Business Initiative ($350,000).

A sweeping education bill (HB 7069) that Corcoran championed, negotiated in private and passed in the final hours of the regular session last month has drawn sharp criticism from traditional public schools, as well as many state senators who feel they were forced to accept a bill they didn't like.

"Without question, the House will not allow funding for our schoolchildren to be held hostage to pork barrel spending and special interest demands", Corcoran said in a statement. If they refuse, the Department of Health will take the lead. "We won't stop fighting for worthy projects that Floridians need, want and deserve".

As announced by Corcoran, the deal setting up the special session - made with no input from Democrats - restores Visit Florida to last year's funding level of $76 million, as if Corcoran's repeated ranting about that agency's wastefulness never happened. Rep. Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, who first heard about the special session via Twitter, said he still isn't sure about the details of proposals lawmakers will be asked to approve.

Lawmakers will return later this week where they are expected to pass a new budget for public schools that will be higher than the one they adopted in early May. Corcoran considers that a tax increase, even though the tax rate would remain the same. Next fiscal year's budget for now contains an increase of $24.49 per student.

California, China sign agreement to further green technologies
President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris Accord on climate change is symbolic in more ways than one. Canadian environment minister Catherine McKenna said only jobs in solar industries will increase.

Sen. Rene Garcia, R-Miami, sent a letter to Negron on Tuesday, suggesting lawmakers be given the chance to change the education bill.

"I am not comfortable supporting any compromise that does not create a fair system for our publicly operated K-12 education institutions within this state", Garcia wrote.

"There needs to be legislation that allows us to market our state for tourism and grow jobs while maintaining these important principles".

After spending the last eight months attacking Scott's signature programs as "corporate welfare", Corcoran has now found him to be his main ally.
