TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida lawmakers are setting aside $50 million to pay for a hiking trail that would stretch across the state.
State legislators working over the weekend agreed to spend money on the trail, along with plenty of other hometown projects.
The 275-mile trail would run from St. Petersburg to Titusville. The money would be used to purchase land to connect existing trails already in place.
Gov. Rick Scott could veto the project since he did not recommend it his proposed budget.
House and Senate negotiators are spending the entire weekend trying to resolve final differences in a proposed $74 billion budget. Lawmakers are scheduled to end their session on May 3.
They have still not resolved major issues such as teacher pay raises and whether to hike college tuition.
