| January 7, 2019

scouts replant dunes in flagler beach

The Boy Scouts of Troop 400 in Bunnell, along with some Flagler County Master Gardeners and adult volunteers, worked Saturday morning (Jan. 5) to save sea oats on the dunes between Beverly Beach and North 18th street before the state Department of Transportation starts digging up the area to install a sea wall. The plants were dug up, potted, and will be held and cared for until the project is completed, when the plants will be replanted. It has been determined that sea oats have the highest value and survivability, so that is where collection efforts were focused. (Barbara Kipnis)

Announcements:

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.

AGRICULTURE DAMAGE EYED: The Senate Agriculture Committee will discuss the effects of Hurricane Michael on the state’s agriculture industry. A November estimate by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services said the industry sustained $1.49 billion in damages, with the estimated losses for the timber industry at $1.3 billion. The University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in late October projected that nearly 1 million acres of crops such as cotton, nuts and vegetables, along with beef, dairy and other animal products, were damaged across 25 counties from the powerful Oct. 10 storm that made landfall in Mexico Beach. (Monday, 2:30 p.m., 301 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

TAX BREAK FOR DIAPERS ON TABLE: The Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee will consider a proposal (SB 60), filed by Sen. Lauren Book, D-Plantation, that would create a sales-tax exemption for diapers, incontinence undergarments, incontinence pads and incontinence liners. (Monday, 2:30 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

CRIME VICTIMS MEASURE DISCUSSED: The Senate Criminal Justice Committee will look at a newly approved constitutional amendment designed to expand the rights of crime victims. Amendment 6, widely known as the “Marsy’s Law” amendment, received support from 61.6 percent of voters in the Nov. 6 election, clearing a 60 percent threshold needed for passage. The amendment included a series of rights for crime victims, including the right to be notified of major developments in criminal cases and the right to be heard in legal proceedings. The proposal was part of a national movement that stems from the 1983 death of a California woman, Marsy Nicholas, who was stalked and killed by an ex-boyfriend. Marsy Nicholas’ brother, Henry, is the co-founder of Broadcom Corp. and has spearheaded the Marsy’s Law effort. The Criminal Justice Committee workshop is expected to include representatives of the Florida Department of Corrections, the Florida Police Chiefs Association, the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys Association, the Florida Public Defender Association, the Florida Sheriffs Association, the state courts system and the group Marsy’s Law for Florida. (Monday, 2:30 p.m., 37 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

MEDICAID, OPIOIDS AT ISSUE: The Senate Health Policy Committee will receive an update from the Agency for Health Care Administration about Medicaid and an update from the Department of Health about opioid-related issues. (Monday, 2:30 p.m., 412 Knott Building, the Capitol.)

Inauguration:

NUNEZ HONORED AT BREAKFAST: Lt. Gov.-elect Jeanette Nunez will be honored during an event titled, “Women Transforming Florida: A Tribute Breakfast.” Nunez, R-Miami, is a former state House member. Also taking part in the event will be incoming First Lady Casey DeSantis. (Monday, 8 a.m., Goodwood Museum, 1600 Miccosukee Road, Tallahassee.)

DESANTIS DISCUSSES VISION: Gov.-elect Ron DeSantis will speak to private- and public-sector leaders during a luncheon event titled, “Bold Vision for a Brighter Future: Thought Leaders Luncheon.” Among the expected participants are Lt. Gov.-elect Jeanette Nunez; Senate President Bill Galvano, R-Bradenton; House Speaker Jose Oliva, R-Miami Lakes; Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby; Rep. Chris Sprowls, R-Palm Harbor; Rep. Paul Renner, R-Palm Coast; and Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry. (Monday, noon, Florida State University, University Center Club B, 403 Stadium Dr., Tallahassee.)

PIZZA PARTY FOR PATRONIS: An inaugural party will be held for state Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis at a pizza restaurant a few blocks from the Capitol. (Monday, 4 p.m., The Deck Pizza Pub, 224 East College Ave., Tallahassee.)

FRIED CELEBRATES TAKING OFFICE: Agriculture Commissioner-elect Nikki Fried will hold a “Growing a Stronger Florida” celebration on the night before she takes office. (Monday, 7:30 p.m., Florida State University, Doak Campbell Stadium, University Center Club, 403 Stadium Dr., Tallahassee.)

JUDGE HEARS ARGUMENTS ON BROWARD SUPERVISOR: A federal judge will hear arguments in a legal battle about whether suspended Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes should be able to regain her job. Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker will consider a preliminary-injunction request by Snipes, who filed a lawsuit against Gov. Rick Scott and Senate President Bill Galvano, arguing that her due-process rights had been violated. After a turbulent election in Broward County, Snipes announced on Nov. 18 that she would resign from the supervisor’s post effective Jan. 4. Scott on Nov. 30 issued an executive order to suspend Snipes, but she decided to rescind the resignation and fight the suspension. The Senate has the constitutional authority to remove from office or reinstate suspended elected officials, but Galvano, R-Bradenton, said the Senate would not take up the Snipes matter because of a lack of time to conduct a “full investigation into the serious assertions” in Scott’s executive order. The lawsuit seeks an injunction to block Scott and Galvano from enforcing parts of state law and a Senate rule dealing with suspensions. (Monday, 1 p.m., United States Courthouse, 111 North Adams St., Tallahassee.)

GULF RED SNAPPER AT ISSUE: The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will kick off a series of meetings about state management of Gulf red snapper. The council is seeking input on a draft plan that would allow the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to set the recreational red snapper fishing season and, potentially, other management measures in state and federal waters off Florida. (Monday, 6 p.m., Hyatt Place Fort Myers at the Forum, 2600 Champion Ring Road, Fort Myers.)
