Media Roundtable Week in Review

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Mark Woods, Florida Times-Union columnist; Claire Goforth, Folio Weekly editor; A.G. Gancarski, Florida Politics writer; and WJCT News analayst John Burr.

Topics include Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry's push to have voters decide whether to approve a half-cent sales tax to help pay off the city's pension debt, this week's One Spark event, and more.

From muck removal to paying for a dolphin pool or beef advertising, the House and Senate have a lot to hash out as they negotiate a roughly $80 billion spending plan for next year.

The Senate last week approved a package (SB 2500) that stands at $80.97 billion, while the House's spending plan (HB 5001) comes in at $79.98 billion.
