Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- Florida’s state budget was signed into law by the Governor – with just under $91 billion dollars approved and $131 million dollars of requested projects vetoed.
- Suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel is fighting to get his job back, leaving the ultimate judgment up to the Florida Senate.
- The Department of Agriculture held public workshops on a new state hemp program approved by the Legislature – before the Governor even signed the bill.
