TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is calling for teacher raises, the eradication of Burmese pythons in the Everglades and a new law to force girls to get their parents' permission to get an abortion. The Republican governor delivered his State of the State speech Tuesday, laying out his goals for his second year in office. DeSantis said he wants lawmakers to pass legislation to help prevent the blue-green algae blooms that have plagued the state. He also wants $600 million to raise teacher salaries to a minimum of $47,500.
