Florida's higher education system is on display in the Capitol Thursday as lawmakers, the governor and the Cabinet hear from the state's top university officials. Here are five things to watch:
* Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet hear presentations from the heads of Florida's 12 public universities, as well as Bethune-Cookman University, about plans for how they will meet the governor's "Ready, Set, Work" challenge.
* Senate President Andy Gardiner, R-Orlando, who is advocating for more university opportunities for children with unique abilities, will address the board of governors of the State University System.
* U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who also chairs the Democratic National Committee, travels to Tallahassee to hold a press conference to discuss gun safety legislation, including bills moving through the Florida Legislature allowing open carry and guns on campus.
* The Florida Senate meets in session this afternoon and will take up several bills including a bill to reduce mandatory sentences for non-violent offenders and another to give people immunity from liability if they attempt to rescue an animal or child locked in a car.
* In the House, the Health and Human Services Committee takes up a long list of bills aimed at reforming health care practices -- from removing the certificate of need process for hospitals and creating recovery care centers for surgery patients, to allowing nurse practitioners to prescribe medications.
