Capitol Buzz: 4 things to watch today in Tallahassee


Here's what we're watching on Day 21 of the 2012 Legislature:


Expect colorful artwork and the pitter-patter of tiny shoes around the Capitol — it's the start of Children's Week hosted by the United Way of Florida.


Speaking of kids, the Senate's Education Pre-K-12 Committee will discuss legislation that revises zero-tolerance policies so non-serious crimes don't result in a student's arrest. Another measure legislators are considering would create a new governing body for private school athletics.


U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland, R-Panama City, will hold a press conference on the steps of the Old Capitol to unveil legislation he will file in Washington that addresses the battle between the federal government and the state over water quality standards.


Although presidential candidates have been praising Attorney General Pam Bondi's efforts to fight foreclosure fraud, a group of community and clergy leaders plan to deliver a statement to her office accusing her of going too soft on big banks who contributed to the crisis.
