SEPTIC SYSTEMS GET ATTENTION: The Senate Agriculture, Environment and General Government Appropriations Subcommittee will receive a presentation on nutrient loads caused by septic systems. (Wednesday, 10 a.m., 110 Senate Office Building, the Capitol.)
HOUSE PANEL HEARS ABOUT PSC: The House Energy & Utilities Subcommittee will receive overviews of the Florida Public Service Commission and the state Office of Public Counsel, which represents consumers in utility issues. (Wednesday, 10:30 a.m., 212 Knott Building, the Capitol.)
UNIVERSITY BUILDING PROJECTS SCRUTINIZED: The House Public Integrity & Ethics Committee, the House Higher Education & Career Readiness Subcommittee and the House Higher Education Appropriations Subcommittee have scheduled a joint meeting to discuss improper spending on building projects at the University of Central Florida and oversight issues in the higher-education system. 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. The revelation about the UCF spending prompted the university system’s Board of Governors to call for all 12 universities to review their funding of building projects over the last decade. The meeting of the House panels is scheduled to include a series of topics, including an investigation of the UCF spending, audit processes in the university system and the use of what are known as “carry forward” fund balances at state universities and colleges. (Wednesday, 1 p.m., 212 Knott Building, the Capitol.)
TOLL ROADS TARGETED: The House Transportation & Infrastructure Subcommittee will receive an overview about tolling operations in the state. (Wednesday, 5 p.m., Reed Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)
