In Florida and in State Government:

Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.

RECOVERY CARE CENTERS CONSIDERED: The House Health & Human Services Committee will consider a proposal (HB 23), filed by Rep. Paul Renner, R-Palm Coast, and Rep. Heather Fitzenhagen, R-Fort Myers, that would allow types of health-care facilities known as “recovery care centers,” where patients could stay up to 72 hours after undergoing surgical procedures. The measure also would allow patients to stay in ambulatory-surgical centers for up to 24 hours, ending a prohibition on overnight stays. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., Morris Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)

COMMUNITY REDEVELOPMENT AGENCIES DEBATED: The House Government Accountability Committee will take up a bill (HB 17), filed by Rep. Jake Raburn, R-Lithia, that would make changes involving community redevelopment agencies. (Tuesday, 1 p.m., Morris Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)

UNDERGROUND POWER LINES AT ISSUE: The Senate Communications, Energy and Public Utilities Committee will take up a bill (SB 494), filed by Sen. Tom Lee, R-Thonotosassa, that would make clear the Florida Public Service Commission has “exclusive jurisdiction” to decide whether underground transmission lines are required for power-plant projects. The proposal stems, at least in part, from a 2016 decision by the 3rd District Court of Appeal in a dispute between Florida Power & Light and local governments about transmission-line issues in Miami-Dade County. (Tuesday, 2 p.m., 301 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

GUNS AT RELIGIOUS INSTITUTIONS CONSIDERED: The Senate Judiciary Committee will consider a proposal (SB 274), filed by Sen. Kelli Stargel, R-Lakeland, that would allow people with concealed-weapons licenses to carry guns while at private schools on the grounds of religious institutions. Outside of law-enforcement officers, state law prohibits people from carrying guns at schools. (Tuesday, 2 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

PASSENGER RAIL CHANGES WEIGHED: The Senate Transportation Committee will take up a bill (SB 572), filed by Sen. Debbie Mayfield, R-Rockledge, that would lead to the state overseeing aspects of high-speed rail. The proposal is an outgrowth of controversy about the Brightline rail service, which is planned to connect Miami and Orlando. (Tuesday, 2 p.m., 401 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

BRANDES, DEW AT AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES EVENT: Sen. Jeff Brandes, R-St. Petersburg, and Florida Department of Transportation Secretary Michael Dew are expected to be among the speakers at the Florida Automated Vehicles Summit. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, 2900 Bayport Dr., Tampa.)
