A bill is moving in Tallahassee that would require future rooftop solar panel owners in the state to pay higher rates. The measure would curb net metering. Solar advocates traveled to Tallahassee on Wednesday to rally for easier access to solar power.

Guests:

Edward Waters University

Recently, Edward Waters College in Jacksonville took a big leap forward, becoming Edward Waters University. And that’s just one accomplishment at the school since Zachary Faison joined as the university’s president.

Guest: Zachary Faison, Edward Waters University president.

Child tax credit expires

Guest: Dr. Richard Besser, president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation; former acting director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
