Capitol Update is daily review of state government during the Legislative Session. Today’s topics include:
- Governor Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency because of Covid-19, and the House took a mid-day recess to sanitize parts of the chamber because several Representatives attended a conference in Washington, D.C. that was also attended by someone who tested positive for Coronavirus.
- Lawmakers met at the Capitol all weekend and throughout the day working to reach agreement on the state budget.
- The full House approved a bill expanding Florida’s school voucher program.
