This week on Florida Matters we're discussing the biggest takeaways from the state's 2018 legislative session.

In this preview we talk about the bill lawmakers passed in response to last month's deadly high school shooting in Parkland.

Among other things it raises the legal age to buy rifles from 18 to 21 and allows school districts to arm some employees.

Host Robin Sussingham hears about reaction to the bill from Steve Bousquet, Tallahassee Bureau Chief for the Tampa Bay Times, and Zac Anderson, Political Editor for the Sarasota Herald Tribune.
