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 Scottâ€™s bold budget plan wasnâ€™t even 24 hours old Tuesday before state legislators started ripping it apart and leveling a familiar charge against the governor: He wasnâ€™t forthcoming with details.
"Whether it was his billions in cuts to Medicaid or to schools, legislators said they werenâ€™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.
