A controversial Senate proposal that would require Florida state colleges and universities to survey students about “intellectual freedom and viewpoint diversity” on campus cleared its first hurdle Tuesday.
What isn’t clear is what would be done with the survey data if the bill ultimately passes.
The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity on Friday released a December unemployment report. Here are the county-by-county unemployment rates:
— Osceola County: 8.7 percent
— Miami-Dade County: 7.3 percent
More than 25,000 Florida residents have died since the COVID-19 pandemic hit early last year, according to numbers released Friday by the state Department of Health.
The department reported a major increase Friday of 272 resident deaths, bringing the total to 25,011. Florida also passed another troubling milestone this week, when it topped 9,000 deaths of residents and staff members of long-term care facilities — with the vast majority involving seniors in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
