Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- As kids went back to school in most districts, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Public Safety Commission put pressure on schools that are still not in compliance with public safety laws enacted after the Parkland shooting.
- State and federal officials gathered in Panama City for a U.S. Senate hearing on Hurricane Michael recovery.
- State economists continued analyzing the potential financial impact of proposed Constitutional Amendments, including one that would ban assault weapons and another that would allow all voters to vote in primaries regardless of party affiliation.
