Assembly Majority Leader Joseph Morelle (D – Rochester) will weigh in on upstate infrastructure parity and the fight over legalizing MMA in New York.

We’ll speak with Asw. Patricia Fahy (D – Albany) about state funding for indigent legal services.

On the anniversary of Citizens United, The New York for Democracy Coalition is advocating for a Constitutional Amendment declaring that corporations are not people, which would overturn Citizens United and related cases.
