Jordan Kirkland - April 30th, 2019

With only four days remaining, a lot of big issues remain for legislators to debate and sift through before the looming deadline.

Today, Florida Senators will will take up numerous issues, including a closely watched proposal () that is different than the House version of the bill.

Sponsored by Sen. Keith Perry, the measure would require repayment of restitution but not of fines and fees that have been converted into civil judgments.

The House bill is different, requiring ex-felons to pay all costs associated with their sentences before being eligible to vote. Those financial obligations can include fines, fees, court costs and restitution.

 

Bill has been placed on special order calendar.
