Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include: .
- The Legislature did not end session on March 13 as originally scheduled because they’re still working on their one Constitutional duty – approving a state budget.
- Governor Ron DeSantis displayed 1,000 of the 2,500 Covid-19 test kits ordered by the state, said more were on the way and would be distributed strategically to labs around the state.
- The Chief Justice of the Florida Supreme Court directed state courts to end most face-to-face legal proceedings for the next two weeks because of Covid-19.
