On Episode 49 of the Only In Miami Show, host Grant Stern interviewed Florida State Representative Jose Javier Rodriguez of Coconut Grove, who sponsored a bill in the Legislature that would require FPL to bury the high energy power lines along the US1 corridor. Mr. Rodriguez updated us on the situation facing these communities of southern Miami-Dade County.
