Fla. lawmakers discuss federal stimulus plan

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - The promised federal stimulus plan is on a state Senate panel's agenda.

The Select Committee on Florida's Economy is set Tuesday to discuss priorities for Florida's use of the federal money, if and when Congress acts on the plan being pushed by President-elect Barack Obama.

High on the list will be replacing $700 million to be borrowed from the state's tobacco settlement endowment as part of a budget deficit-elimination package up for a final vote Wednesday in the House and Senate.

Legislative leaders hope federal stimulus dollars will arrive in time to make that June loan unnecessary.
