Episode 8: Tense Climate The Rotunda
THE ROTUNDA - We track President Barack Obama’s first visit to the Everglades to press his climate change agenda while making subtle jabs at Republicans like Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Rick Scott. Gomes talks with Bloomberg News Washington Bureau reporter, Toluse Olorunnipa, who traveled with President Obama during his Earth Day trip.

The chaos and countdown in Tallahassee continues, as it appears everything including the kitchen sink is up for consideration to end the budget stalemate. At the age of 23, Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, the youngest woman to be elected to the Florida Legislature discusses work-life balance and her controversial bill mandating women seeking an abortion to wait 24 hours. Sen. Don Gaetz talks about his relationship with Rick Scott and his possible run for US Senate in 2016. Then a bipartisan group of legislators pressed pause to blow off some steam during a quick game of basketball for a great cause.
