We hear from a panel of reporters — one based in Tallahassee and the other in the Tampa Bay area — about the most important issues about halfway through the 60-day process.

This week on Florida Matters, we check in on the Florida Legislature as lawmakers reach the midway mark of the 60-day session in Tallahassee.

Among the issues being considered this year, redistricting, abortion, education, voting and pre-emption are the most contentious.

To understand the laundry list of bills that lawmakers are working on, host Steve Newborn brings together two panelists via Zoom. Mary Ellen Klas is the Miami Herald/Tampa Bay Times' Tallahassee bureau chief and Mitch Perry is Spectrum Bay News 9’s political reporter.
