Gov. Ron DeSantis urges Florida Senate to finish Scott Israel hearing before session ends

Gov. Ron DeSantis wants the Florida Senate to oust suspended Broward Sheriff Scott Israel from office sooner rather than later.

DeSantis said Wednesday he thinks there’s still time for the Florida Senate to decide whether Israel should be removed from office before the legislative session ends on May 3.

If lawmakers can’t finish the job by then, DeSantis suggested calling them back for a special session.

He also wants the Florida Senate to uphold his decision to remove Okaloosa County Superintendent of Schools Mary Beth Jackson from office.
