The Florida Roundup: Beckham Wants To Boldly Build Where No One Has Built Before

In Miami, the debate over land for a Major League Soccer stadium now moves where there currently is no land -- a deep water boat slip next to the American Airlines Arena.

While the site doesn't have the same alliance of opponents -- unions, cruise lines and cargo carriers -- that opposed the PortMiami location, it comes with its own challenges.

And after years of corruption scandals, Broward County schools want $800 million to fix schools. The Broward County School Board will ask voters to approve a bond referendum to repair schools. Broward School Superintendent Robert Runcie says if passed, the measure will cost property owners an average of $50 more per year.

Host Tom Hudson speaks with panelists Sean McCaughan of Curbed Miami, Dara Kam of News Service of Florida, Tim Padgett of WLRN-Miami Herald News, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times and Scott Travis of the Sun Sentinel.
