• Committees of the Constitution Revision Commission advance several proposed amendments, including a proposal to change the way some local officials are chosen and another that would eliminate greyhound racing in Florida.
• The Florida A&M Board of Trustees voted to make Dr. Larry Robinson the university’s 12th permanent president.
