Sixty Days — A prime-time look at the 2019 Legislative Session
The Last 24
Good Monday evening. This kind of earned media the House Democratic Caucus could probably do without. Rep. Anika Omphroy openly accused fellow Democrat Carlos G. Smith of bullying and intimidation at this weekend’s Party get-together in Orlando, and other House D’s are pushing back on changes to how the caucus elects its own leadership. Sixty Days is counting the days till the start of Session. Here’s your nightly rundown.
Bully or no bully? Omphroy said “no woman should suffer (such) mental anguish.” Smith countered that the exchange did not go down the way she said.
Democratic pushback: House Democratic Leader Kionne McGhee wants Democrats to pick their next three leaders sooner, but influential members of the caucus aren’t having it.
Justice better late than never: A Senate committee OK’d a bill Monday to extend the statute of limitations in sexual attack cases.
No stacks for stadiums: Americans for Prosperity-Florida backed a repeal of sports incentives, which it’s long derided as corporate welfare.
Smile for the camera: Sen. Jeff Brandes has revived his effort to have police interrogations for serious crimes recorded
