Giving the Governor the power to end regulations and pushing for an end to the Cuba embargo
Good morning, welcome to Radioactivity. Iâ€™m Rob Lorei. Coming up today weâ€™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 weâ€™ll hear about a local movement that is pushing for open trade with Cuba.
But first some listener comments about yesterdayâ€™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 Scottâ€™s possible conflict of interest over drug testing. Hereâ€™s what some listeners have been saying.
First up today- Travis Pillow, a writer for the website The Florida Independent. Heâ€™s covering a story in Tallahasseeâ€”itâ€™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 â€“ 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.comments powered by Disqus
