Governmental Spending in Real-Life Terms

This week we look at Florida's state budget. Instead of viewing it in terms of millions or billions of dollars, we attempt to humanize the numbers. What do state budget cuts or surpluses really mean? We look for answers in mid-town St. Petersburg and at a research center in Tampa. We pose some questions about the process to a Florida lawmaker, and end the broadcast with some late-breaking news in the Martin Lee Anderson case.
