Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- The Joint Legislative Budget Commission met at the Capitol and approved revenue/budget projections by state economists.
- The State University System Board of Governors focused on the budget and mental health issues at their meeting in Sarasota.
- The Clemency Board restored voting rights for some felons who’ve done their time — and rejected others — in their last meeting before voters decide if the Constitution should be amended to make it easier to restore voting rights.
