The Florida College System

The Florida College System could be revamped if the Senate gets its way.  Senate President Joe Negron has railed for years against what he sees as mission creep: community colleges stepping into roles traditionally held by universities. And now there's a bill that would begin to cut down on that expansion.

What happens to your digital life after death? The Florida legislature could address the question Tuesday. Two proposals pending in the House would allow online profiles to be amended after a person dies, but only if someone has granted their consent.

The Senate is set to take up the task of determining how emails and social media accounts will be accessed after death, but some claim the measure could interfere with existing federal law.
