The I-4 Ultimate project is underway. Governor Rick Scott joined officials last week to break ground on the 21-mile upgrade.

Later in the program, 90.7’s Catherine Welch talks with University of Central Florida Deputy Police Chief Brett Meade about so called sovereign citizens.

The FBI classifies them as domestic terrorists who believe they are above the law — and their numbers are growing in Florida. Brett Meade explains how law enforcement deals with sovereign citizens in their efforts to protect the Central Florida community.
