8:31 am
romney fought against trump every single step of the way. and fought against him with really vicious language. >> but some democrats believe the former massachusetts governor would be a good person to work with other countries as secretary of state. mitt romney has be a class act. he since the election. ist no surprise he's making himself available to the president-elect. trump is also considering others for the position. including former general david petraeus and former new york city mayor rudy giulia that are being looked at. and what i have to respect about the president-elect, he's really taken this process very, very seriously. mr. trump's expected to begin his victory tour starting in cincinnati, ohio tomorrow. and he'll also travel toll indiana to unveil an agreement made with company carrier to keep 1,000 jobs in the hoosier state. in new york, jackie, fox news. well, burn the flag go to jail. president-elect proposed jail
8:32 am
american flag. this despite two u.s. supreme court rulings that protect the act under the first amendment. it's regarded as freedom of speech. regardless of that, trump tweeted tuesday that no one should be allowed to burn the flag. if they do there should be consequences. time now 8:32. this morning top stories we should find out today if a tampa man will be granted bail while he waits new trial for murder o% a man on basketball court. >> years old and wheelchair bound is accused of a killing david james in 2010. dooley claims ait was a case of self-defense he was sentenced to eight years in prison for killing james. but back in april, dooley won an appeal to get a new trial after the court found mistakes during his sentencing. dooley's lawyers are asking for him to be released on bail pending that next trial date. a california attorney who ones represented casey anthony was charged with trying to smuggle
8:33 am
officials say he flew a private jet from orlando to port au prince to load it with 1500 kilograms of cocaine. back in 2010 he represented anthony in the murder trial of her two-year-old daughter. he left anthony's defense team due to disciplinary charge he was later disbarred. he was sentenced to prison last year as well for defrauding clients and investors. he was arrested in extradited to the u.s. about two weeks ago. well fury florida power and light customer you're going to club state regulators agree to bump yesterday. it's an $811 million base rate increase overall. but public service commissioner agree to spread out increases over the next three years. people who use 1,000 kilowatts an hour of electricity a month will see about a $5 increase in january. critics are calling the decision unnecessary. and environmentsly unfriendly. fresh air and a little by
8:34 am
way when it comes to our children's overall health. but most elementary students are getting chance to go outside during the school day. newly filed legislation may change that. a republican senator out of miami-dade is pushing for a minimum of 20 minutes of recess a day. and she's getting a lot of support from parents. fox 13 kelly cowan is live in st. pete morning to tell us about how some local moms are helping to push this legislation along. hey kelly. >> hey good morning to you guys. it's hard to believe i've talked to here in pinellas county as we've been out here this morning. hard to believe that so many elementary school children across the state simply don't have recess in their schedules any more. but now parents are fighting to take back the playground for their kids. a new bill aimed to put a mandatory 20 minutes of recess in each school child's day. now that bill received overwhelming approval in the house earlier this spring.
8:35 am
it never even made it for to the floor for vote. because senator john legg out of pasco who was at the time chair of chamber education pre-k through-12 committee wouldn't hear it he said the state should not be mandating recess that's something should be left up to schools themselves. but parents who were on the side of this legislation say that when it's been left up to the schools the schools simply make the decision to cut recess altogether in favor of testing. and to many parents. >> obviously research is there. there's we don't need any more proof that kids need activity. adults need activity. people need to move every day to, you know succeed in life. and succeed academically. so this mandate is not something that we want to have mandate at the state level. we have tried other things. but it will give the teachers the allowance to take that be time that they need. so now that new bill is back
8:36 am
of bill that failed last round. in state legislature did not make it through senate they are hopeful it will not only overwhelming receive the same response in the house but also make it to the floor the senate for a vote. because this is time around, senator john legg is no longer in office come this spring. so he will no longer be able to block it once again. >> all right kelly, thanks. >> talk to you later. thank you. now, school officials are also working hard to get students out classroom there. on healthier track across the uk school districts send students outside each day to run a mile. not only helps childhood obesity fresh air also helps students concentrate a bit more. daily mile effort is working. now spread to thousands of other schools. across a handful of other countries. this morning good day good deed is courtesy of a man in manatee county whos generosity

8:39 am
the energy from that front moving north, we just get maybe a tiny shower. so the good news is that i think the heavy rain will absolutely, not only help out with the fire in tennessee and carolinas but their drought situation is extreme up there. that's going to help that. for us once this front gets into the area, honestly, just a quick little shower at best. that rain chance 30 percent. we're going to 82, maybe a high temperature this afternoon. and it looks like we'll stay in the upper 70s to around 80 tomorrow even with some cloud cover around. quick shower. we dry it out for two days. and then humidity comes right back in again. especially on monday and tuesday with highs in the lower 80s. i don't know what it is about people trying to win mug. you guys raised bar with some pictures you sent in recently. check this one out #welivehere.
