Capitol Connection

Capitol Connection is a monthly television program, produced by Senate Democrats.

 

Capitol Connection Schedule April-May 2017

This month’s Capitol Connection has interesting segments on both the federal effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act and proposed federal budget cuts aimed at the environmental programs. It includes reports from local Resistance Forum events; plus, a discussion on the unification of four state agencies.

The program also examines two pieces of proposed legislation: one that would use the state’s Amber Alert network to track down hit-and-run drivers, and another that would help families get treatment for opioid addicts.  In addition, high school students become state senators as part of Good Government Day activities.

Democratic senators involved in this month’s show include: Sen. Jay Costa (D-Allegheny), Sen. Judy Schwank (D-Berks), Sen. Vincent Hughes (D-Philadelphia), Sen. Sharif Street (D-Philadelphia), Sen. Anthony Williams (D-Philadelphia), Sen. John Yudichak (D-Luzerne) and Sen. Daylin Leach (D-Montgomery).
