Florida's legislative session begins next Tuesday, March 7, 2017.

It's that time of year again -- Florida's legislative session begins next Tuesday, March 7.

This week on Florida Matters we're exploring some proposals lawmakers are considering in the upcoming session, and talking about the politics behind it all. 

In this preview, Florida Matters host Robin Sussingham talks with William "Windy" March, a political columnist for the Tampa Bay Times

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
Robin is Senior Editor at WUSF, spearheading the station's podcasting initiatives and helping to guide the vision for special reporting projects and creative storytelling. She created The Zest, the station's podcast that's all about food, which she continues to host and serve as senior producer.
