Questions raised over Florida Cabinet meeting in Israel

Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis' plans to hold a Cabinet meeting while he's in Israel has raised concerns about whether the officials are violating the state's open-meeting laws

But DeSantis also has announced plans to hold a meeting with the state's three independently elected Cabinet members while he's there. That has raised concerns about whether the officials are violating the state's open-meeting laws.

The trip begins Saturday. As of Tuesday, the Cabinet hadn't posted the meeting on its calendar or provided an agenda.

Barbara Petersen of the open-government watchdog group First Amendment Foundation is concerned. She says there is no reason to hold a Cabinet meeting that regular Floridians won't be able to attend.
