Today in Tallahassee: Five Things To Know

TALLAHASSEE It's the last day of the Florida Legislative session and it will be a long one. Dozens of bills remain unresolved, including a handful of high profile bills that are priority projects for the Republican leadership and Gov. Rick Scott. They will be the top five withings to watch:

* The House is expected to take up a bill to overhaul the state's child welfare laws early in the day and send it to the governor.
* A bill to allow for the children of undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition will gets its expected final vote in the Florida House, as will a bill to allow a noncitizen to be granted a law license is expected to get approval in the Florida Senate. 
* The Senate may make one last try to pass a House priority bill to expand the number of students who qualify for private school vouchers.
* An bill to toughen disclosure rules for local officials gets a vote in the Senate.
* And the only bill legislators are required to finish all year -- the state $77 billion budget -- may be the last bill of the day. The vote is expected around 8:35 p.m., when the 72-hour clock runs out on the required review period.
