Ask the Governor is a monthly presentation of Radio PA and PAMatters.com. This is the program for July, taped on 7/11/14…just one day after the governor announced line-item vetoes of some funding for the state legislature. He discusses that move in-depth and also updates us on pension reform, efforts to privatize state liquor stores, Medicaid, the efforts to levy a cigarette tax for Philadelphia city schools, his response to the Attorney General’s report on the Sandusky investigation, non-budget bills he recently signed into law and much more. The governor also expresses some candid thoughts on why he’s having so much difficulty working with a state legislature run by his fellow republicans.
Our next program will be coming up on August 4th. Check back regularly with PAMatters.com for updated program information. Submit your questions or comments for the governor today by clicking the Ask the Governor link at the top of this page.
