Skelos, Common Core and REDC awards

Last Updated by Matt Ryan on

This week we examine all the political news making headlines from Manhattan to the State Capitol. 

In New York City, the Dean Skelos corruption trial nears an end as the jury has begun deliberations.  Yancey Roy of Newsday reviews the last week of the trial for the Nassau County legislator.  Also, reporters Rick Karlin and Bill Hammond join us to review the reboot this week announced for the Common Core and we look back at what many have called "The Hunger Games," the annual Regional Economic Development awards.

Finally, Bennett Liebman of the the Government Law Center at Albany Law School will take us through a history of the Moreland Act, including the most recent ones created by Andrew Cuomo.

Watch the full program above.
