Radio Smart Talk for Friday, July 12:
The Pennsylvania State Capitol
Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane dropped a bombshell Thursday when she announced she would not defend the state against a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union this week that challenges the state's ban on same sex marriage.
Attorney General Kathleen Kane
It's one of several issues a panel of journalists who cover the state capitol will discuss on Friday's Radio Smart Talk.
Marc Levy, Pennsylvania Politics, Government, and Economy Reporter for the Associated Press, Ed Mahon, the Politics and Government reporter for the York Daily Record, and witf's Capitol Bureau Chief Mary Wilson will provide the insight and their observations about several significant issues.
Among other topics that will be addressed are the three governor Tom Corbett wanted legislative action on before the end of the state's fiscal year on June 30 -- liquor privatization, public pension reform, and transportation funding. Lawmakers adjourned before taking final votes on all three.
Legislators return to Harrisburg for a special state budget-related session Monday, but won't take up Corbett's big three.
Ed Mahon, Mary Wilson and Marc Levy
