Florida Matters: 2017 Legislative Roundup
It took them three days longer than it was supposed to, but Florida lawmakers have finally passed a new state budget.
This week on Florida Matters we’ll take a look at what’s in the $83 billion spending plan along with a few other issues decided during the 60-day session.
Our guests include:
- Lynn Hatter, Florida Public Radio reporter and News Director at WFSU in Tallahassee
- Dr. Susan MacManus, Distinguished Professor of Public Administration and Political Science at the University of South Florida
