Intersection: Pulse Trial Update; Legislative Session; SeaWorld; Jones High Musicians Bound For Carnegie Hall

Florida’s legislative session extends into the weekend, after lawmakers struck a deal on the budget, but missed the Tuesday deadline to get it done. 

The focus in the final weeks of the session has been on school safety and gun legislation- so where does that leave other big issues like healthcare, the environment, housing and higher education?

On this episode of Intersection political analysts Dick Batchelor and Chris Carmody join us to discuss how the session shook out. 

We hear from 90.7’s Brendan Byrne who has been following jury selection in the trial of Noor Salman, the widow of the Pulse shooter.

Seth Kubersky joins us for a discussion on SeaWorld’s future after the departure of CEO Joel Manby.

And the Jones High School band director Jamaal Nicholas prepares his students for the performance of a lifetime- at Carnegie Hall.
