Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government.  This edition of Capitol Update featured team coverage of Hurricane Irma, including:

  • Efforts by state agencies to get supplies to the Keys and restore basic infrastructure so thousands of people who evacuated can get back to their homes.
  • Governor Rick Scott and other state officials toured some of the hardest hit areas of the state, including parts of South Florida and flood zones in the northeast.
  • State agencies joined the investigation of the nursing home in Broward County where 8 people died without air conditioning three days after the storm passed.
