TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Legislature enters the second week of its 60-day session Monday as it dives deeper into the process of winnowing the thousands of bills before it.

Among the bills before lawmakers in the next week is a measure unionists consider a union buster.

The Legislature will also move to close a loophole that exempts some sexual offenders from having to register with authorities.

And they will revisit the threshold for ballot measures to win passage.
