Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government. Topics this week include:
- The Florida Supreme Court heard oral arguments about what it means for a felon to complete all terms of a sentence – a crucial point in an amendment that gave many felons their right to vote back.
- The Public Service Commission rejected a request from many power companies to set energy-saving goals of zero.
- Several lawmakers took to the press conference podium this week to get the word out about ideas they want to become law this upcoming session.
