Capitol preview: What to expect this week in Florida politics


As the leaves begin to turn, relatives arrive and the Christmas shopping starts, Tallahassee goes dark again this week, with a holiday-shortened week without much government action.

Last week’s legislating and governingpalooza gives way to an empty Capitol this week ahead of things picking up again in early December.

The people looking at public hospitals, however, can’t be deterred. Neither holiday weeks nor heat nor gloom of night appears to stay these bureaucrats from the completion of their appointed task.

The Public Service Commission also works a couple days this week, but for the most part, it’s a dead week.
