“Why else do we so often see devout people so hard, so angry, so unsociable? It’s because they’ve imposed on themselves a task which isn’t natural to them. They suffer, and when one suffers, one makes others suffer.”

–From Diderot’s “Rameau’s Nephew” (1762).

phil reynoldsLeadership Academy Graduate: Commander Philip Reynolds of the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office graduated from the 43rd Class of the Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institutes’ Florida Leadership Academy on January 11, 2019. “I’m very proud of Commander Reynolds and his determination to continue to learn and develop as a leader,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “On behalf of our agency, we all wish to congratulate him on this achievement.” The Florida Leadership Academy is a four-week course held in Tallahassee, Florida, designed to prepare first line supervisors in criminal justice organizations to exemplify the character and integrity expected of criminal justice professionals. Graduates understand leaders as role models, and the importance of leaders as coaches, teachers, and mentors to other members of the organization. Participants in the Florida Leadership Academy learn the skills necessary to support the technical and administrative needs of their agency. These skills include proactive problem solving, effective communication, and related leadership skills. The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Institute, which is part of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and is affiliated with the State University System, was established in 1990 by the Florida Legislature to address the need for an innovative and multi-faceted approach to the education and training of criminal justice professionals (www.fdle.state.fl.us).

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.

FRIED SPEAKS TO AGRICULTURE PANEL: Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, who took office Jan. 8, will appear at a meeting of the Senate Agriculture Committee. (Tuesday, 10 a.m., 301 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

AMENDMENT 4 GETS AIRING: The Senate Criminal Justice Committee will hold a workshop about Amendment 4, a ballot measure that passed in November to restore the voting rights of felons who have fulfilled their sentences. The workshop is expected to include representatives of the Florida Association of Court Clerks & Comptrollers, the Florida Commission on Offender Review, the Florida Department of Corrections, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the Florida Department of State, the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition and the Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections. (Tuesday, 10 a.m., 37 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

SCHOOL SAFETY REPORT DISCUSSED: The House Education Committee and the Senate Education Committee will receive presentations on a report by the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Public Safety Commission, which was created after the mass shooting in February in Parkland. The report addresses numerous issues, such as the possibility of arming teachers and ways to bolster the security of school buildings. (Tuesday, House committee at 11 a.m., Reed Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol. Also, Senate committee at 2:30 p.m., 412 Knott Building, the Capitol.)

ATTORNEY FEES DEBATED: The Senate Banking and Insurance Committee will hold a workshop about a bill (SB 122), filed by Chairman Doug Broxson, R-Gulf Breeze, that would restrict the assignment of attorney fees in insurance disputes. (Tuesday, 12:30 p.m., 412 Knott Building, the Capitol.)

‘SINGLE SUBJECT’ REQUIREMENT CONSIDERED: The Senate Judiciary Committee will take up proposals (SJR 74 and SJR 86) that would impose a single-subject requirement on constitutional amendments placed on the ballot in the future by the Florida Constitution Revision Commission. The similar proposals, filed by Sen. Rob Bradley, R-Fleming Island, and Sen. Jose Javier Rodriguez, D-Miami, target what are known as “bundled” ballot measures. The issue drew attention last year after the Constitution Revision Commission bundled seemingly unrelated issues into single amendments. As an example, one amendment that was approved by voters Nov. 6 combined a ban on offshore oil drilling with a ban on vaping or use of electronic cigarettes in workplaces. The Constitution Revision Commission, a 37-member panel that meets every 20 years, has unique powers to place measures on the ballot. The commission will not meet again until 2037 in advance of placing measures on the 2038 ballot. But the Senate proposals could go before voters in 2020 and, if approved, would apply to the 2037-2038 Constitution Revision Commission. Both proposals would require Constitution Revision Commission measures to “embrace but one subject.” (Tuesday, 12:30 p.m., 110 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)

BUILDING CODE ON TABLE: The House Commerce Committee will receive an overview about issues related to the Florida Building Code. (Tuesday, 4 p.m., 212 Knott Building, the Capitol.)

UCF FINANCES SCRUTINIZED: The House Public Integrity & Ethics Committee will receive a presentation from the Auditor General’s Office about an audit of the University of Central Florida and will receive a presentation from committee staff members about an investigation into UCF construction funding. The scrutiny stems, in part, from a state audit last year that determined UCF had improperly used $38 million in state funding to construct a campus building. The school’s use of the accumulated operating funds was a direct violation of state policy that restricts that funding to activities like instruction, research, student services and maintenance. (Tuesday, 4 p.m., 404 House Office Building, the Capitol.)

GULF RED SNAPPER AT ISSUE: The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will continue 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. (Tuesday, 6 p.m., Plantation on Crystal River, 9301 West Fort Island Trail, Crystal River.)
