3/9/2018: State Budget Deal; School Board Reaction

Mar 9, 2018

The state budget and public schools were the focus of this week’s The Florida Roundup.

Hosts Melissa Ross and Tom Hudson were joined by WFSU News Director Lynn Hatter and WJCT reporter Ryan Benk to talk about how the legislature was finally able to agree to a budget deal and some of the things the legislature did and didn’t pass before the end of the session.

We also spoke with Duval County School Board Chair Paula Wright and Broward County School Board member Robin Bartleman about the possibility of school employees being armed and some of the education related legislation coming out of Tallahassee.
