Officials will hold a special legislative session to discuss details of the states' spending plan for the surplus. Road projects and relief to property insurance ratepayers are some of the ideas presented. It has also been suggested that the surplus be used to pay off some of the $1 billion debt which were used to pay hurricane-related claims.
