Today’s Media Roundtable discussed some of the top stories in the First Coast, including:

  • Students around the state walked out of class as part of a statewide coordinated effort to protest the so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill. 
  • The Jacksonville City Council’s Rules Committee chose not to vote on proposed redistricting maps amid a barrage of public comments.
  • The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, sponsored by the United Nations, warns against rising climate change, specifically mentioning Florida.
