I'm trying to find out how to read the following abbreviations found in the short "history" section at the bottom of a Florida statute website. For example: "s. 54, ch. 88-1; s. 30, ch. 88-277; s. 36, ch. 91-110"

I would like to follow these references to learn the history of statute, but I'm not sure what they mean or how to follow them.

In case it is helpful, here is a link to a statue page with such history information.
