Today on Radioactivity we listen back to the latest Florida This Week, a political discussion show on local PBS station WEDU that is moderated by Rob Lorei. This episode’s panel of political experts and insiders discuss several controversial bills moving through the state legislature.One bill would allow the state to regulate and authorize fracking for natural gas, one would make abortions a first degree felony and a pair of bills would make it harder for people who file public records lawsuits to recoup their legal fees from the government. We also look at the rise of new HIV cases in Florida.
