That’s what it looked like during reconstructive surgery at Wadsworth Park’s skate park last week. But the work is now done. Three major ramps on the north end of the skate park were replaced as part of the $80,000 project, as well as some rails and other smaller features. The remainder of the skate park was pressure washed and painted. (© FlaglerLive)

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.

SENATE HOLDS FLOOR SESSION: The Senate is scheduled to hold a floor session. (Wednesday, 10 a.m., Senate chamber, the Capitol.)

HOUSE HOLDS FLOOR SESSION: The House is scheduled to hold a floor session. (Wednesday, 10:30 a.m., House chamber, the Capitol.)

JURY RECOMMENDATIONS AT ISSUE: The Florida Supreme Court will hear arguments on four issues, including a debate about jury instructions in death-penalty cases. The issue stems, at least in part, from a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in a case known as Hurst v. Florida and a subsequent Florida Supreme Court decision. The 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling found Florida’s death-penalty sentencing system was unconstitutional because it gave too much authority to judges, instead of juries. The subsequent Florida Supreme Court ruling said juries must unanimously agree on critical findings before judges can impose death sentences and must unanimously recommend the death penalty. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Florida Supreme Court, 500 South Duval St., Tallahassee.)

SCOTT, CABINET MEET: Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet will take up a series of issues, including a proposal that would help conserve 772 acres in Madison County that was the site of a Spanish mission in the 1600s. Scott and Cabinet members will decide whether to spend $660,060 to purchase what is known as a conservation easement on the property, which is owned by R.N. Koblegard III and Charlene Koblegard and has been farmed for more than 80 years. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Cabinet meeting room, the Capitol.)

PAROLE CASES HEARD: The Florida Commission on Offender Review will take up a series of parole cases. (Wednesday, 9 a.m., Betty Easley Conference Center, 4075 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee.)
