The article reports on the announcement by Senate President Jim King regarding the need of special session due to the question between Florida Senate and House Republican leaders over how to spend the state's 52 billion dollar fiscal 2004 budget. The 2004 budget technically is not needed until the July 1, start of the fiscal year 2004, but a flap between King and House Speaker Johnnie Byrd, has stymied the passage of major bills. Those include measures to reduce public school class sizes, the House's promise to take another vote on the joint resolution to seek repeal of the controversial high-speed rail program, and the repeal of Florida's well-known intangibles tax on stocks and bonds.
