"The governor of Florida is calling for change after a jury gave the Parkland school shooter Nicholas Cruz, life in prison instead of the death penalty. Florida governor Ron DeSantis, calling on his state legislature to change the death penalty law. They need to get in there and they need to fix this. Desantis frustrated after the convicted Marjorie Stoneman Douglas high school shooter was sentenced to life in prison, spared the death penalty. Under the current Florida death penalty law, which took effect in 2017, the jury must unanimously agree on the death sentence or its automatically life in prison. But until 2016, a simple majority vote of 7 5 was enough. ABC lip off. Well, if you haven't already heard, it's going to cost more for most of us to heat our homes this winter. And apparently that's not just the case here in the U.S., a lot of other countries are facing that possibility in Italy. They're already protesting about it. Skyrocketing energy prices set in motion by Russia's invasion of Ukraine, brought protesters out here in Rome this weekend. Italy got almost half of its gas imports from Russia and is now seeking to eliminate dependency on the country, European countries that import gas from Russia like Germany and Italy have found alternative sources and have built up gas stocks ahead of winter. Still, prices will hit highs and there are already measures in place requiring people to lower the heating temperatures to save power. Megan Williams ABC News. This is ABC News. We check traffic every ten minutes on the forest from the dubin law group traffic center. Here's our seat cats.

"For now, Europe's right is celebrating with Spain's vox and Hungary's Victor Orban among the earliest to congratulate her. For Monaco in Milan, I'm Ed stocker. Thanks very much, Ed. Well, I'm joined for more from Rome by the journalist Megan Williams. Megan, these are provisional results. Can you give us the numbers that we have so far? Well, what we're looking at now is Georgia meloni's party fertility d'italia our brothers of Italy getting about 26% of the vote, which was more or less what most polls had indicated, the second most popular party is the Democratic Party of the center left, but they're under 20%, so they've dropped. And as we just heard, the populist 5 stars had a sort of last minute surge, this is a party that has veered to the left and its leaders now Giuseppe Conte, who was Middle East prime minister for a while. So they did fairly well. But the most interesting thing about giorgia meloni center right coalition and the coalition that she's formed with Silvio Berlusconi and Matteo salvini is that she really has the vast majority of votes with this 26% her two partners took 7, 8%, which is quite a dip, particularly for salvini. What was the turnout? The turnout was low. And in fact, it was about 64%, about 10% less than the elections four years ago and meloni herself addressed that in her victory speech at two 30 in the morning here and a hotel in Rome. We all stood around and waited for that. She said she was very disappointed that Italians don't understand how important it is to vote and one of the things that she would like to do is to increase a sense of importance among Italians of government institutions and the need to participate. Is there a particular demographic that supports maloney and her party? I think it's hard to say, I mean, Italy is an older country. But this particular election, the age limit dropped for people voting for the Senate. It used to be that you had to be 25 to vote for the Senate. Now you can be 18. So there were about 4 million more younger voters, but it's really not clear yet how many what the percentages of those younger voters who were attracted to meloni. Now Melania backs Ukraine, but that's not true of her coalition partners. What will this mean for the war and how is the EU reacted to the swing to the right? Well, her partner Matteo salvini, who has been in interior minister in Italy, whose anti migrant and very pro Putin traditionally, he's against the sanctions, the western sanctions against Russia and Silvio Berlusconi had made comments against Putin's invasion of Ukraine, but just a few days before the election, he went on national television to defend Putin essentially and say that he was forced to invade Ukraine and then all he really wanted to do was replace the zelensky's government with some decent people and then leave, but he faced unpredictable resistance. So I don't know how that's going to change maloney's position. I would doubt it would change much just because she's said repeatedly that she supports Ukraine. And she has a lot more power than these coalition partners do now. But as you have on the line has been very strong on the fact that the EU isn't I paraphrase here, but isn't taking any nonsense. Well, she came out and made a statement a few days before the election saying that the European Union has means to deal with a coalition that causes trouble. I don't know. I mean, we'll just have to see what meloni does. Her hands are really tied, particularly in terms of the economy. Italy got some 200 billion Euros in funds from the European Union to help it with its post pandemic recovery plan. And this was the plan that former power outgoing prime minister Mario daghi was ushering through, but there's very little wiggle room that given that we're possibly going into a recession that the cost of energy have spiked as there's inflation.
