Companion proposals in the Florida legislature could dissolve police oversight boards across the state, including those in Tampa and St. Petersburg. One bill already cleared a senate committee this week.

Joining The Skinny on Friday, Jan. 26 from 11 a.m.-noon are Tampa attorney James Michael Shaw Jr. who is a lawyer and member of the Florida ACLU, plus two members of Tampa’s Citizen Review Board, Irene C. Guy and Devon J. Ingandela.
