Florida's Reopening; The Continuing Battle Over Voting Rights
Florida has entered the Phase 1 stage of reopening with restaurants operating at 25 percent capacity. Parks and beaches have also reopened, across much of the state.
The virtual trial over Florida’s Amendment 4 wrapped up this week. The constitutional amendment restores the right to vote for felons after they complete their sentences. However, the state legislature later passed a law requiring all fines and fees to be paid before a felon could vote again, which led to a lawsuit. Sean Morales-Doyle, Senior Counsel at Brennan Center for Justice, and Fineout joined us for a closer look.
