Florida Supreme Court justices are the highest-paid statewide officials, with their salaries substantially higher than the amounts paid to the governor, state Cabinet members and legislators.

Florida could see the position of Secretary of State turn from an appointed position to an elected one. A Fernandina Beach lawmaker filed legislation filed this session to do just that.

Florida’s Cabinet is at odds over who should become the state’s next Insurance Commissioner.  The candidate search is back on, and Cabinet officials are hoping to agree on a successor at their next meeting.
