Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- Firearms are in the spotlight once again – as House Democrats call for a special session on gun violence and state economists pore over the economic impacts of a proposed constitutional amendment that seeks to ban assault weapons.
- A crowded room at the Board of Education meeting hoping to hear more about teacher pay increases in a state budget request instead heard plans for teacher bonuses and incentives.
- The Governor announced Florida will soon be part of a voter registration network with 29 other states that compares voter rolls to catch duplicate registrations.
