CAPITOL BUZZ: 3 things to watch in Tallahassee today

Three stories to watch in Tallahassee today:

* The Senate's Education Pre-K-12 Committee will discuss legislation that revises zero-tolerance policies so non-series crimes don't result in a student's arrest and another measure that creates a new governing body for private school athletics.

* U.S. Rep. Steve Southerland 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.
