The new laws include Florida’s $82 billion budget, along with a package offering $91.6 million in tax breaks during the upcoming year.

Commercial delivery by drones, new rules for Uber and Lyft, boat docking and expressing religious beliefs at schools are among the new laws taking effect in Florida on Saturday.

Students and teachers will be allowed to express their religious beliefs at public schools. The new education law also sets aside money for charter schools.
