Florida Matters News Roundtable: 2018 Legislative Debrief

State Legislature

This week on Florida Matters we're talking about some of the key takeaways from the 2018 legislative session.

We break down parts of the state budget as well as measures on school safety, gun control and opioid prescriptions. We also debate the session's "winners and losers."

Our guests include:

Steve Bousquet: Tallahassee Bureau Chief for the Tampa Bay Times

Zac AndersonPolitical Editor for the Sarasota Herald Tribune

You can hear more discussion about bills that passed this session, like a measure to provide vouchers for bullied children to switch schools, and other measures that failed, like an effort to crack down on texting-while-driving, on our podcast Florida Matters More.

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.
