Gov. DeSantis to give first State of the State
Gov. Ron DeSantis will give his first State of the State address today at 11am. Since taking office almost two months ago, Gov. DeSantis has added to the State Supreme Court, given aid and attention to the environment and suspended both the Broward County Sheriff, and the Palm Beach Elections Supervisor.
Now he will take on the state legislature, which opens its two–month session today. Republicans command the House and Senate, but Florida Senate President Bill Galvano, R–Bradenton, says the chamber won't be a rubber stamp for the new executive. Galvano has staked out plans for major highway expansion while House Speaker Jose Oliva, R–Miami promotes a cost–cutting overhaul of Florida health care regulations. The former three–term congressman from Palm Coast says he is willing to share power. SNN is airing the State of the State in its entirety and will have more on this story throughout the day,
