A roundtable discussion with reporters and a conversation with House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler.

(Harrisburg) -- A new legislative session is dawning in Harrisburg, and with that comes a lot of change.

This week, the state Capitol was flooded with family and friends and supporters of dozens of new lawmakers, as they were sworn in for the next two years.

The House and Senate also approved a whole bunch of changes to the internal rules that'll govern them this session. Plus, House Republicans have announced their new slate of committee chairs--people who have a lot of influence on which bills get heard in the chamber.

Stephen Caruso from the PLS Reporter and Charlie Thompson of PennLive join us to discuss what this all means--plus, we'll hear directly from newly-minted House Majority Leader Bryan Cutler.
