'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Rural and western NY are getting hit by statewide shortage of doctors. Sherry Chorost, Director of Work Force and Regulatory Affairs at the Healthcare Association of New York will tell us how this is affecting residents, and why this is happening now.

Redistricting maps aren’t out yet. Perhaps they won’t be released publically until after the Governor’s noon press conference; regardless, we will analyze a few of the reported changes with former Assemblyman Michael Benjamin.

Then, we focus on education: First, the Buffalo News’ Education Reporter Mary Pasciak on how the Governor’s proposals around education are being viewed in the city.

And a discussion about education reform with both Buffalo City Schools Interim Superintendent Amber Dixon, and former President of the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities & principle at Praxis Insights, Abe Lackman. Lackman is also a former Secretary of the New York State Senate Finance Committee; he played a central role in shaping the state’s education aid formula.
