Then Jessica Bakeman, a reporter for Capital New York, joins Bill and Susan to preview this year’s Legislative Correspondents Association Show, The Gov Boat. The show is on Tuesday, June 9 at 7 p.m. at the Empire State Plaza Convention Center. Rebuttals are by Republican State Senator John DeFrancisco and Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie.

Finally, we look at gruesome new details of the 1971 Attica prison uprising from the recently released volumes of the Meyer Report. Two staff attorneys for the Attica Legal Defense, Joseph Heath and Elizabeth Fink, will join Susan Arbetter to discuss why they believe the report only scratches the surface of the brutality.
