In our podcast for this week we talk to Sen. John Yudichak (D-Luzerne) about the potential closure of SCI Retreat and other state prisons after the administration's announcement last Friday that two of five named facilities will be mothballed.
In this episode of the podcast, we take you back to swearing-in day--held just this past Tuesday--to hear the Floor speeches given by the two House Floor leaders.
In the continuing back-and-forth between Senate Republicans; the Wolf administration; and SEIU over the sunsetting of Unemployment Compensation funding, Sen. Scott Wagner (R-York) released audio and video Thursday responding to SEIU members who protested outside of his York district office Wednesday evening.
Sen. Wagner has been an outspoken critic of extending the funding absent justification for its use and an exit strategy on behalf of the Wolf administration from not relying on the state funding going forward.
This is the audio recording he released Thursday morning.
