From The Palm Beach Post: Starting Friday, clergy who don’t want to marry same-sex couples will have state backing for their beliefs, high school students will have more choice over where they play sports or study, and local governments won’t be able to regulate the use of Styrofoam containers.

Those are among the 159 new laws that will go into effect in Florida on July 1.

Lawmakers sent 272 bills to Gov. Rick Scott during the regular legislative session, which ended in March. Scott vetoed three and signed the rest.
