Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Good morning welcome to Radioactivity. I'm Rob Lorei. The St. Petersburg Times reported this morning:
"Gov. Rick Scott’s bold budget plan wasn’t even 24 hours old Tuesday before state legislators started ripping it apart and leveling a familiar charge against the governor: He wasn’t forthcoming with details.
"Whether it was his billions in cuts to Medicaid or to schools, legislators said they weren’t sure what Scott specifically wanted to do in his budget, which would further widen a $3.6 billion shortfall next year due to nearly $2.4 billion in proposed tax cuts."
Here to talk with us about the state budget is Alan Stonecipher communications director of the Florida Center for Fiscal and Economic Policy, a nonprofit focused on budget and tax issues, particularly from the viewpoint of low and moderate income Floridians.
