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.

HEARING SET IN SENATE DISCRIMINATION CASE: U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle will hold a hearing in a case filed by the Florida Senate after allegations by a legislative aide that she was a victim of sexual harassment and retaliation. Aide Rachel Perrin Rogers filed a discrimination complaint in January with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The Senate filed a lawsuit in Hinkle’s court seeking a preliminary injunction to block an administrative law judge from requiring the Senate’s participation in the EEOC case. The Senate contends, in part, that it is protected by the legal doctrine of sovereign immunity, though EEOC lawyers are fighting the Senate on the issue. Perrin Rogers was at the center of a sexual-harassment investigation late last year that led to the resignation of powerful Sen. Jack Latvala, R-Clearwater. Perrin Rogers alleged that Latvala harassed her, triggering the Senate to appoint a special master to investigate the accusations. The special master, former state appellate Judge Ronald Swanson, found probable cause to support Perrin Rogers’ allegations — though Latvala has steadfastly denied them. Perrin Rogers, an aide to Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, subsequently filed the EEOC complaint against the Senate, alleging in part that she faced retaliation. (Friday, 11:30 a.m., United States Courthouse, 111 North Adams St., Tallahassee.)

SCOTT, CABINET MEET: Gov. Rick Scott and the state Cabinet will meet by phone and consider a series of issues, including two Florida Power & Light power-plant projects. Scott and the Cabinet act as a state “siting” board with authority to decide whether power-plant projects should move forward. The two FPL proposals are a project to build a 1,200-megawatt Broward County power plant, which has drawn opposition from the Sierra Club, and a nuclear project at the Turkey Point complex in Miami-Dade County. In 2014, Scott and the Cabinet approved FPL’s plans to add two nuclear reactors at the utility’s Turkey Point complex. But the decision was overturned by the 3rd District Court of Appeal after local governments argued, in part, that the governor and Cabinet failed to use Miami land-development rules. The court also found Scott and the Cabinet erred in claiming they didn’t have authority to require the installation of underground transmission lines. The court sent the issue back to Scott and the Cabinet. (Friday, noon, public access in Cabinet meeting room, the Capitol.)
