In Florida and in State Government:
CONSTITUTION PANEL TARGETED: The House Civil Justice Subcommittee will take up a proposal (HJR 301), filed by Rep. Brad Drake, R-Eucheeanna, that seeks to repeal the state Constitution Revision Commission. The commission meets every 20 years to recommend proposed constitutional amendments. But it became highly controversial last year as it put seven measures on the November 2018 ballot. That controversy stemmed, in part, from the commission “bundling” unrelated issues into single constitutional amendments. If lawmakers ultimately approve Drake’s proposal, it would go before voters in 2020 because it would involve changing the Constitution. (Thursday, 9 a.m., 404 House Office Building, the Capitol.)
SCHOOL HARDENING, MENTAL HEALTH ON TABLE: The House PreK-12 Appropriations Subcommittee will receive presentations about school-hardening funds and mental-health awareness and assistance training. (Thursday, 9 a.m., Reed Hall, House Office Building, the Capitol.)
UCF TRUSTEES MEET: The University of Central Florida Board of Trustees will meet. (Thursday, 8:30 a.m., University of Central Florida, Fairwinds Alumni Center, Orlando.)
DEEPWATER HORIZON ‘SUMMIT’ HELD: The Florida Department of Environmental Protection will hold a Deepwater Horizon Restoration summit to discuss restoration efforts and priorities related to Deepwater Horizon funding. (Thursday, 9 a.m. Central time, Emerald Coast Convention Center, 1250 Miracle Strip Parkway S.E., Fort Walton Beach.)
SUPREME COURT RELEASES OPINIONS: The Florida Supreme Court is expected to issue its weekly opinions. (Thursday, 11 a.m.)
FEA CONTINUES BUS TOUR: The Florida Education Association will continue a bus tour focused on calling for increased education funding. (Thursday, noon, United Teachers of Dade, 2200 Biscayne Blvd., Miami.)
