Episode 8: It's protest season

Written by Katie Meyer | May 26, 2017 5:11 PM

After a few quiet weeks, the last three session days brought with them some notable legislative action.

The Senate passed a long-awaited bill to expand gambling and provide the commonwealth with needed revenue; the governor signed a measure to bring PA's IDs into federal compliance; and there are whispers that it might soon be possible to restructure state pensions.

Plus, the week saw an influx of protests, chiefly from the group March on Harrisburg. Its members are urging lawmakers to strengthen historically lax gift laws, among other things.

The AP's Marc Levy stops by the coffee shop to help explain the lay of the land.
