Intersection | SunRail weekday service extends, push for weekend service.
Last month, Sunrail extended their evening weekday service. The change comes after a public clamor for additional service on the commuter rail line- which is still in it’s first year of operation.
Now there’s a push for weekend service as well.
Dan Tracy, Orlando Sentinel Transportation Reporter; David Porter, Publisher of SunRailRiders.com; and Erica Spence from the Winter Park Chamber of commerce join 90.7’s Matthew Peddie to talk about the impact of extended service of SunRail – and the cost of future expansion.

Meanwhile, two other high profile Republicans - Rick Perry and Chris Christie - are making an appearance in the Sunshine state for Governor Rick Scott’s inauguration.

Intersection | Florida Prisons: A Round Table Discussion
Next week, Julie Jones will become the new secretary of Florida's Department of Corrections – and she has a big job ahead of her.
The U.S. has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and Florida's rate is in the top ten among states. The Florida Department of Corrections has a $2 billion annual budget. It includes about $50 a day for each of its more than 100,000 inmates. The Department of Juvenile Justice is separate from the adult prison system, and it spends an additional $150 per day per detainee.
90.7's Amy Kiley discussed the issues facing Florida's criminal justice system with Professor Hugh Potter, interim chair of the UCF Department of Criminal Justice; David Cramer, director of His Healing Hand Ministries and Final Freedom Aftercare; and Natalie Kato of Human Rights Watch, who helped craft Florida's new juvenile sentencing law.
