Capitol Update is a weekly review of state government.  Topics this week include:

  • Surgeon General Scott Rivkees ordered proof of Florida residency before someone can get a COVID-19 vaccine in the state.  
  • The Legislative Black Caucus is trying to figure out why only 58,540 of the 1.1 million Floridians who’ve been vaccinated are African-American.
  • Florida’s unemployment rate dropped to 6.1% in December.
