The Legislature agreed to mandate online voter registration by 2017, but don’t log-on yet. Governor Rick Scott’s top elections chief is strongly opposed.  

All Florida city, county and state government agencies will have to buy state and American flags that are made in the United States under a bill going to Gov. Rick Scott.

Several school districts on Tuesday continued to suspend Florida's new standardized tests for a second day, despite assurances that the problems had been fixed.

Education Commissioner Pam Stewart early in the morning asked districts to resume using the online portal that middle school and high school students must use in order to log on and take the state's annual standardized tests. Testing had been suspended a day earlier because of technological problems.
