Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- While Florida’s Panhandle takes a moment to remember Hurricane Michael’s wrath and destruction, recovery efforts are still ongoing – and will be for a long time to come.
- Duval County has four times more people dying from drug overdoses than murder according to the Statewide Task Force on Opioid Abuse.
- Voting rights organizations voiced their concerns in federal court on a new law that requires ex-felons to pay off fees and fines before they can exercise their right to vote.
