Many critical issues are set to close out the Florida Legislature's final week.

Bills on speed limit increases, stadium funding, medical marijuana, gambling, and in-state tuition for undocumented immigrant children are all on the table.

Votes on these topics will have to be made by the close of the session at midnight on Friday.


The Legislature also sent Governor Scott a proposal leading into their final week that could alter abortion standards

The bill would further limit the time that an abortion could be performed during pregnancy by as many as four weeks.

A spokesperson reiterated the governor's pro-life stance and said that he looks forward to reviewing the legislation.
