Does The Governor Deserve Credit For The Economy?

On The Florida Roundup, we take a special look at the economy.  

Employment, tourism and real estate numbers suggest a recovery. We’ll examine whether Gov. Rick Scott’s “it’s working” motto is actually working -- for him.

Meanwhile, the legislative session is over but many bills are still under review by the governor. The biggest: Florida's $74.5 billion budget.

And locally, could South Florida lose both the Super Bowl and the International Swimming Hall of Fame to California?

Host Phil Latzman speaks with guests Trevor Aaronson of the Florida Center for Investigating Reporting, Tom Hudson, host of WLRN's The Sunshine Economy series, and reporter Karen Burkett of WLRN-Miami Herald News.
