Capitol Pressroom

June 9, 2015: Asm. Joseph Lentol, EITC opposition, redistricting, Adirondack Council

Asm. Joseph Lentol (D – Brooklyn) looks at ethics and criminal justice reform proposals.

We hear why Jasmine Gripper, AQE’s Legislative Coordinator, and Rev. Dr. Ray Blanchette oppose the Education Investment Tax Credit.

A Supreme Court case, Evenwell v. Abbott, could change the way redistricting is decided nationwide. We’ll discuss why this case might have a big impact on New York with NYPIRG’s Legislative Director Blair Horner, Capital New York reporter Bill Mahoney and Jeffrey Wice, a Fellow at SUNY Buffalo Law School.

Finally, the Adirondack Council’s Executive Director Willie Janeway and Communications Director John Sheehan outline end-of-session priorities and initiatives they wish had more momentum this session.
