PODCAST: WNY politics in the spotlight

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

It was quite the week in Western New York politics.

First, Rep, Chris Collins made headlines with his amendment to the Republican's health care plan that angered Governor Andrew Cuomo.  Called the "Buffalo Bribe" by some, the amendment would shift Medicaid costs from the counties back to the state. We discuss the back and forth between the governor and Collins that spilled over-the-air and on-line,

Also, a current and former WNY state senator were indicted in Albany.  Rob Ortt and the man he succeeded, George Maziarz, were charged with eight total charges of filing a false instrument. 

Our guest to help us try and make sense of it all is Niagara County native Jon Campbell of the USA Today Network.
