MERIT Scholarship expanded after GOP pushback

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

The legislature is not in session for the next two weeks, but that doesn't mean there's a lack of news to analyze.

Governor Cuomo responded to pushback from the Assembly GOP and even Donald Trump by expanding the MERIT Scholarship, which provides financial aid to children, spouses and financial dependents of military members who have died or become severely disabled while in a combat zone.

We'll review the week's headlines and discuss the politics of it all with Bill Mahoney of Politico and Rick Karlin of the Times Union.  

Join us this weekend on your local PBS station.
