WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:


As WMNF reported last night, thanks in part to the efforts of the man poised to become the state's next Senate President, Florida is a step closer to the formation of an Innocence Commission which would investigate the causes of wrongful conviction and come up with ways to prevent it from happening in the future.

Last month Republican Senator Mike Haridopolos successfully pushed through a Senate budget amendment allocating $200,000 for a commission. WMNF caught up with the Senator this morning and asked him how he came to be involved in the issue.
