Giving the Governor the power to end regulations and pushing for an end to the Cuba embargo03/29/11 Robert Lorei
Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Tuesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. I’m Rob Lorei. Coming up today we’ll look at an effort by the Governor of Florida to concentrate more power in his office and the Cabinet by repealing hundreds of state agency rules ... and we’ll hear about a local movement that is pushing for open trade with Cuba.
But first some listener comments about yesterday’s call-in shows. One comment about the interview with Dan Savage about his project It Gets Better; and another about the Last Call interview yesterday with blogger Joy-Ann Reid about questions she is raising over Governor Rick Scott’s possible conflict of interest over drug testing. Here’s what some listeners have been saying.
First up today- Travis Pillow, a writer for the website The Florida Independent. He’s covering a story in Tallahassee—it’s about a bill making its way through the legislature that would give the Governor and Cabinet power to bypass normal procedures and repeal hundreds of state agency rules – without having to give an explanation or justification for doing so.
Next up - there's a grassroots movement to lift the decades-long US embargo on Cuba. We're joined now by a spokesperson for the group Gordon Chernecky. He's organizing a protest this afternoon at 4PM at the Pinellas Trail Overpass, intersection of US 19 and Enterprise Drive in Clearwater.
