Swan's Picks: Feb. 9 and Feb. 17 Consolidated Edition

We're pleased to give you last week today, in addition to the week's picks. For those who want a preview of what else is to come, check out links to prefiled bills in the upcoming legislative sessions in Florida and Texas. In Florida, an effort to reverse attacks there on same-sex marriage; tightening of inspection laws to prevent another Surfside condo collapse in addition to the Reedy Creek bill noted below; and enacted already, and signed yesterday, authorization to fund Governor Ron DeSantis' moves to fly undocumented people from Florida and Texas to sanctuary jurisdictions nationwide. In Texas, three bills that would restrict academic freedom in the University of Texas system; and one to interfere with judicial independence. Have a good Presidents' Day weekend.
