TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis has signed 94 bills into law, according to a press release sent from his office late Tuesday night.
The deadline for the governor to make a decision on each of the bills was Wednesday.
In busy legislative season in Florida, the governor has signed a number of high-profile bills including the so-called 'anti-riot' bill, a ban on transgender females from participating in female sports and a bill requiring high school students to learn CPR.
Among the notable bills that recently got DeSantis' signature is HB 7051, which will require prospective police officers to disclose whether they have been investigated in any other job in law enforcement. The bill will also require by law that officers step in if they see excessive force being used on a suspect.
The law also requires that officers being trained will be discouraged, but banned, from using chokeholds.
Another major bill signed into law is SB 44, which expands the use of drones, allowing law enforcement to use a drone when a crowd of 50 or more people are gathered.
Another high-interest bill signed is HB 259, which legalizes, for special purposes, concealed weapons at Florida religious institutions, including churches, mosques and synagogues.
However, religious institutions may still enforce gun bans if they choose.
A bill concerning the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was signed that requires the FDLE to maintain a rape kit database.
According to the bill's text, HB 673 would "create and maintain a statewide database to track the location, processing status, and storage of each sexual offense evidence kit collected after the implementation of the database that is accessible to law enforcement agencies and alleged victims."
