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.
