I would hope that if they do postpone the session it would be for good reason such as state bills being revised and the such where it would benefit people and not cause more deficit.

Default Special session

http://www.flgov.com/pdfs/DOCVIII-B.pdf

Here is the link to what the special session was supposed to cover. The media is trying to play this up as a soft on crime issue. Being where as the th Goveneor is supposed to be tough and crime . The key issues here is $$$$$$ Florida is in a finanical mess (so is Calif.) trying to find ways to ease some of the cost of running prisons and any other programs they may cut.
