WUCF TV explores the 2015 Legislative Session in this week’s Metro Center Outlook

Posted by Jennifer Cook on

The 2015 Florida Legislative Session begins on March 3.  Among the issues, medical marijuana, employment and job growth, oil drilling and statewide school testing.

This week on Metro Center Outlook, host Dr. Diane Trees sits down with Florida Sen. David Simmons (R – Altamonte Springs) and Sen. Darren Soto (D - Orlando) to discuss party strategies and priorities.

“The important thing to do is to be able to work with members of the opposing party,” said Simmons. “You have to remember that you have two chambers where you have to pass the legislation and you have to remember that you have to have a governor who’s satisfied with the outcome.  So it’s sort of like juggling balls in the air and once you do that and once you learn how to stay at it and stay determined, you can get it done.”

Metro Center Outlook airs each Sunday on WUCF TV at 9 a.m.
