April 25, 2014: Ws and Ls, Ken Lovett, Move to Amend, explaining land trust grants

Reporter Matt Hamilton of City & State presents the week’s Winners & Losers.

Albany Bureau Chief for the NY Daily News Ken Lovett discusses the Governor’s position on the Moreland Commission among other issues.

Move to Amend’s Michael Messina-Yauchzy and Anthony Cresswell argue that the Supreme Court’s decisions in Citizens United & the McCutcheon have hurt democracy as well as damaged the legal structure regulating campaign contributions. We will discuss both rulings as well as their claim that the rights protected by the Constitution of the United States should only apply to “natural persons”.

What are “Land Trust grants” and who benefits from them? Mark King, Executive Director of the Mohawk Hudson Land Conservancy and Jim Bonesteel, President of the Rensselaer Plateau Alliance, explain.
