C-SPAN covers Tampa Bay; Florida League Of Women Voters says it's stopping voter registration efforts05/13/11 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Friday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up today we'll talk with C-SPAN producer Debbie Lamb about C-SPAN's "local content vehicle" tour of the Tampa Bay area. C-SPAN producers are spending one week here visiting various literary and historic sites, and interviewing local historians, authors and civic leaders.
During C-SPAN’s inaugural tour stop in Tampa/St. Petersburg, the network will also record interviews about the city’s plans for the 2012 Republican National Convention.
And later we'll talk with Deidre MacNab, president of the Florida League of Women Voters. Earlier this week the LWV announced that it will cease voter registration in the state of Florida upon implementation of HB 1355.
The LWV says:
"Not only does the bill make it more difficult for voters to participate in our democracy via a decrease in early voting and new policies regarding address changes at the polls, it also imposes an undue burden on groups such as ours that work to register voters."
