This program offers news on the public reactions in Florida and the repercussions on issues such as the “Stand your Ground” law and the legal system.

ALSO, STUDENT LOAN RELIEF? A group of senators reached a deal that would provide college students better interest rates in their loans. Congress has been reluctant to extend low interest rates for federal loans for low- and middle-income students, resulting in the interest rate doubling to 6.8 percent. A student advocate joins this edition to discuss the future of student loans.

Guest: Laura Maristany Martinelli, Executive Director of Legislative Affairs, Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities, Washington, DC, www.hacu.net
