Capitol Buzz: Things to watch today in Tallahassee



After a busy week in Tallahassee, the Florida Legislature has no meetings scheduled Friday as many Republican leaders will head to Orlando for the two-day annual meeting of the Republican Party of Florida. Here's what to watch:

* The Florida Department of Health sponsors the "Wear Your Walking or Running Shoes to Work Day," as it ends its Healthy Weight Week. The event is designed to encourage all state agencies and private-sector employers to urge employees to wear their sneakers and get active.

* The Florida Commission on Ethics meets to take up a series of cases from North Miami, Pensacola, Palm Coast and Tallahassee.

* The Republican Party of Florida hosts its 2016 annual meeting at the Rosen Centre in Orlando. Gov. Rick Scott is not expected to attend.
