in the U.
State known for razor thin voting margins, more than a 1,000,000 people just be eligible to vote down.
The middle explanation of that is what's first today on CNN.
10 up.
Carla Zeus.
Welcome to the show.
A new state law just took effect in Florida that will restore voting rights to people who've been convicted of felonies.
Serious crimes.
Until this week, Florida was one of four states where convicted felons were never allowed to vote again.
But in last November's midterm elections, almost 65% of Florida's voters decided to change that, giving the right to vote back to about 1.4 million former offenders.
People convicted of murder or certain types of assault are still not allowed to vote for those who are.
The law requires them to have completed all the terms of their criminal sentences.
There's been some confusion about that.
For one thing, it's up to the former offenders themselves to determine whether they've completed their terms.
But what about any fines they've been ordered to pay?
An election supervisor says the law isn't clear about how that should be handled.
The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida a civil rights group led the effort to get the law passed.
It calls the change a nonpartisan issue.
But the law has some critics on both sides of the political aisle.
Some say convicted felons should first prove they can live a life free of crime before they're allowed to vote.
Others have said that all former offenders should be allowed to vote even if they've committed crimes like murder.
This law is getting a lot of attention specifically because it's taking effect in Florida.
Politically, it's considered a swing state, one that could choose either a Democrat or Republican.
And because it's a state with a high number of electoral votes, political analysts are trying to figure out how this could affect Florida's influence on future elections.
New voters in a state already infamous for razor thin margin elections and nail biting recounts were the swing ist of swing states.
Political science professor Charles Elden says Amendment four has the potential to dramatically alter Florida's political landscape.
Doesn't matter what party there, because this potentially changes the political dynamic across the state in every county in every voting district, but that no one knows for sure what such a massive potential increase to the voter rolls in such a short amount of time will mean for the political establishment.
And that's why, Zeldin says, politicians are rattled.
What is the most valuable company on the planet?
Alibaba, Alphabet, Amazon or Apple?
Worth an estimate.
$810 billion Amazon recently passed.
Microsoft is the world's most valuable company.
At one point last year, Amazon was even more valuable it past the $1 trillion mark.
But like other technology companies, it's fallen from that peak with dips in the stock market since then.
Still, it's huge.
It's founder who owned 16% of the company, remains the wealthiest person on earth.
Amazon says that New York City, one of the places where it plans to build a second headquarters.
We'll see 25,000 new jobs over the next decade that Amazon will hire people from all five boroughs of New York City and that their positions will receive an average salary of $150,000 a year.
But despite all this and a print ad in some New York newspapers, that red Happy New Year from your future neighbors at Amazon, its plans have met with protests, as some of those new neighbors don't want the company to come.
It all.
One big reason for that is because their state is using their tax dollars to pay Emma's on the set up shop There.
Another reason.
The expected side effects of the new Amazon headquarters in NYC, usually sober confines of New York City Hall.
New Yorkers are demanding answers.
Barely a month since Amazon announced half of its second headquarters would move to the city opposition to the plans growing and at the center of it.
New York City Council member to me, Van Bramer.
A few days before the hearing, Van Bramer showed me round the Queensbridge Houses, the largest public housing development in the U.
It's less than a mile from the proposed Amazon site.
We all should be concerned with the level of unemployment that exists here in Queensbridge level of poverty.
The median income is $15,000.
Why is it not a good thing that an Amazon wants to bring all these high paying jobs to boost the area?
Well, particularly because there are no guarantees that anyone here in Queensbridge are gonna have access to those jobs.
New York is following a long established playbook when it comes to attracting big companies offering Amazon up to $3 billion in grants and incentives to develop this waterfront area.
They say, in return for 25,000 high paying new jobs and up to $30 billion in new tax revenue, the revenue to incentive ratio that is the highest rate of return for an economic incentive program that the state has ever offered.
We have no idea what we're getting.
And yet Amazons decision has ignited a debate here that goes well beyond the rate of return.
Some experts question whether the incentives necessary.
The fact that Amazon had a bid worth $9.7 billion from Pittsburgh and eight and 1/2 1,000,000,000 from Maryland and didn't go to any of those places speaks volumes about the fact that incentives are almost always irrelevant.
Amazon has promised to invest $5 million in workplace development in Long Island City, including holding hiring events that Queensbridge Van Bramer, this is now bigger than Amazon.
This is a wake up call.
This is an opportunity, an inflection point for us as a society to be thinking about how we do economic development.
Last night, U.
S President Donald Trump was scheduled to make a prime time address to America.
It was set to be his first address from the Oval Office.
Part of the White House is West Wing, and the main subjects were expected to center on the issue of immigration and the campaign promise President Trump made to build a wall between the U.
And Mexico.
Afterward, a response was planned from two prominent Democratic lawmakers, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who publicly opposed the Trump administration's plans for the wall.
We'll have coverage of these events and tomorrow's show as the president spends part of his Thursday traveling to America's Southern border.
This is all taking place as the partial U.
Government shutdown extends into 1/3 week and it's all related.
The money to build the wall is a key part of the bigger federal funding agreement that would end the partial shutdown.
So we'll be covering all of these topics is part of our objective coverage of US political events.
Not all of the concepts introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show, a massive trade show in Las Vegas, Nevada, live up to their height.
Three D TV has got a lot of attention years ago and more recently curved TVs and ones with flexible screens.
But those don't always make it to American living rooms.
Still, if you're straining your eyes to see what the screens of the future could look like, there are few better places to start.
These prototypes from LG Display give us a sense of what television's might be like in the future, or maybe even the near future.
You see these vibrant colors.
Don't get fixated on that.
This is all about the potential of mobility taking a screen from your home office and because it's so light, just being able to take it to your kitchen, your bedroom, wherever the power, the data, everything the screen needs to function coming through one single U.
It's cool, but is it necessary?
Only the future consumer can decide that this screen is 88 inches.
The speaker is also 88 inches.
That's because the screen literally is the speaker, and what that technology allows this screen to do is move the sound 100% in sync with the image, so you may not be able to hear this at home.
But as these UFOs go up and down, I can clear the sound moving up and down.
What about a transparent television?
This old led technology means that H picks always creating its own light strong enough to make this commercial concept.
But what if one day this were your bedroom window course?
Those who remember see Artie's could find this new tech Catholic.
