Buzz Conover of Florida Public Radio reports from Tallahassee that two black state legislators ended their protest at Governor Jeb Bush's office after he agreed to delay his executive order ending state affirmative action programs until public hearings are held. Governor Bush met with State Representative Tony Hill of Jacksonville and State Senator Kendrick Meek of Miami about 24 hours after they began their protest. The two Democrats want the Republican governor to rescind the executive order, known as "One Florida."
