Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- The Legislature sent the final batch of bills from the 2019 session to Governor Ron DeSantis.
- The Governor signed a long list of bills including one that authorizes a state industrial hemp program and one that will allow investor-owned utilities to charge customers directly for storm hardening activities.
- Only one person showed up for the final day of a state-required oyster harvesting training course in Apalachicola – an event that, in the past, hundreds of people attended.
