TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - House and Senate leaders remain
deadlocked over the Florida budget.

They continued behind-the-scenes talks without resolution Friday as state employees and a Miami cigarette company's workers held protests in the Capitol rotunda.

State workers are angry over a House budget provision that would cut most wages by 4 or 5 percent. The Senate plan would only cut the salaries of those making more than $100,000 by 1 percent.

Employees of Dosal Corp. protested a proposal discussed but not
included in either the House or Senate plan.

The company would have had to pay fees because it's now exempt
from paying into a tobacco company settlement to compensate sick
smokers.
