TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — In the final week of Florida's legislative session, it appears a bill has stalled that would have required minors to get parental consent before having an abortion. Florida law currently requires parents to be notified if their daughter is planning to have an abortion, but the bill which already passed the House, goes further by requiring parental consent. The bill includes exemptions for situations such as minors who have health emergencies or who already have children.

THE ROTUNDA - President Barack Obama makes a  historic trip to Cuba. Gomes also checks in on Marco Rubio’s return to the halls of Congress after his disappointing second-place finish in Florida’s primary election. With Gov. Rick Scott’s signing of the state’s record $82 billion budget, Florida Policy Institute Executive Director Joe Pennisi tells Gomes the spending plan still lacks adequate investments in health care, public education, prisons and other state services. Gomes also chats with Florida NOW lobbyist Barbra DeVane about her strategy to get Gov. Scott to veto a bill (HB 1411) that could restrict access to reproductive health care.
