This week’s Capital Connection roundtable examines the “big issues” in New York and Pennsylvania. The agenda for this episode includes:

  • Politics and faith had a big overlap during Easter Week, with Joe Biden’s triple Sunday proclamations and Donald Trump’s promotion of a specialty Bible
  • Legalization of marijuana in Pennsylvania could trigger the same economic, criminal and social problems other states have already seen
  • Phrasing of a New York legislative proposal affects the debate: is it “death with dignity” or “physician-assisted suicide”?
  • Some legislators recommend action that could affect PA charter schools, limiting some families’ school choice

Dan Bartkowiak substitutes for Michael Geer this week. Bartkowiak is the Director of Communications for the Pennsylvania Family Institute. [ online at PAFamily.com ]

Jason McGuire is Executive Director of the New York Families Federation.  [ online at NewYorkFamilies.org ] In this podcast, McGuire explains the “rebranding” of that group, previously called New Yorkers for Constitutional Freedoms.
