April 21, 2015: Stephen Acquario, severe weather forum, Peter Iwanowicz and Pete Grannis

Where are the lines drawn between local and state powers? NYSAC’s Executive Director Stephen Acquario was the featured speaker at the third Anderson Breakfast of this year, “Unchaining Local Government: Opportunities in New York State.” He joins Susan Arbetter to explain the local/state divide.

Dr. Chris Thorncroft, the Chair of University at Albany’s Department of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences, and Robert Bullock, the Deputy Director of Operations for the Rockefeller Institute of Government, preview the April 23 forum, Facing the Storm: Severe Weather Challenges Confronting New York State in the 21st Century.

We take a look at the 45th Anniversary of Earth Day, which is Wednesday, April 22, with two men who have served as DEC Commissioners–Peter Iwanowicz, the Executive Director of Environmental Advocates of NYS, and Pete Grannis, the First Deputy Comptroller of NYS.
