A twist to the end of the state legislative session means lawmakers need to reconvene again. 

Legislative Session

With no agreement on a budget, the Florida House adjourned three days early from the legislative session. The feud between House and Senate members on Medicaid expansion has led to most of the delay. Bills have been left behind. Senate Democrats filed a motion to the state Supreme Court to get House members back to work Thursday. Senate President Andy Gardiner has suggested that both chambers should come back in June to wrap up budget issues. Officials need to have a budget ready by July 1. 

For-Profit Education In Florida

The Miami Herald's year-long investigation into for-profit colleges has uncovered how the industry has expanded in the state. Recruiters shared their "pain funnel" techniques to get students in, and often students find they are in programs that are not accredited for the career they are pursuing. We sit with the lead reporter Michael Vasquez.

Our host Tom Hudson is joined by Kathleen McGrory, Sergio Bustos and Michael Vasquez of the Miami Herald, Mike Van Sickler of the Tampa Bay Times and John O'Connor from WLRN.
