Wonk and Circumstance 110 - Sanctuary Cities & Federal Supremacy

May 2, 2017

Immigration is a story that has been in the news throughout the election of 2016 and well into the administration of President Trump. While the issue has many facets, our focus in this episode is the relationship between local, state, and federal governments when it comes to immigration enforcement. We hear from Mario Ariza and Chris Sanchelima, who offer us differing perspectives on a Florida bill that would bar any city from serving as a "sanctuary city."

Wonk and Circumstance 109 - Enterprise Florida

April 25, 2017

One of the most controversial issues of this year's legislative session is an agency that isn't a household name - Enterprise Florida. The House and Senate have wildly divergent views on the future of the agency, and its sister organization in Visit Florida. The fight has gotten so extreme that it has placed the budget, the legislature's primary responsibility, in jeopardy of not being completed on time.
