Capitol Pressroom

Jan. 23, 2015: Ashley Hupfl, Ken Lovett and Michael Gormley, Karen Magee, Doug Muzzio

Ashley Hupfl joins us with this week’s City & State Winners and Losers.

Ken Lovett, the Albany Bureau Chief for the NY Daily News, and Michael Gormley, an Albany reporter for Newsday, explain what Speaker Sheldon Silver’s arrest could mean for budget negotiations. They’ll also discuss Gov. Cuomo’s 5th State of the State Address.

The contentious education reforms Gov. Cuomo announced in his 2015 Opportunity Agenda conflict directly with the New York State United Teachers (NYSUT). NYSUT President Karen Magee weighs in on the Governor’s proposals for teacher evaluations, failing schools, and the increase in the charter school cap.

Doug Muzzio, a professor at the Baruch School of Public Affairs, looks at the ramifications of Sheldon Silver’s arrest and the Governor’s 2015 agenda.
