- The week ended with a sign of hope that Florida’s economy may be on the road to recovery from the pandemic.
- A new female justice took a Florida Supreme Court seat – but not the one Governor DeSantis had originally appointed.
- The state university system’s Board of Governors is considering ways to generate more revenue in the face of budget cuts – including possibly raising tuition.
