2 Major Banks Will No Longer Donate To FL’s Step UP For Students; Super Bowl Goes Green


On Friday's Roundup we discussed the decision by  Wells Fargo and  Fifth Third Bank to no longer donate to Florida’s school voucher program after learning some of the state-funded schools have policies that discriminate. We also looked at how this Sunday's Super Bowl in Miami is going green.

Annie Martin, from the Orlando Sentinel and State Representative  Carlos Guillermo-Smith, District 49, discussed why the banks have decided to no longer support  Step Up for Students.

A Greener Super Bowl

Jon Paul “J.P.” Brooker, Senior Manager and Policy Counsel for Florida Conservation joined us along with  WLRN Reporter/Producer  Alex Gonzalez  for a discussion on what the  Hard Rock Stadiumis doing to make the Super Bowl more sustainable and why.
