'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Friday, March 02, 2012 - 11:05 AM

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Ken Lovett of the New York Daily News updates us on the latest redistricting news. And over which issue George Takei is threatening to debate Donald Trump.

Former AG Bob Abrams says he has the answer to the redistricting question.

The Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act or RLUIPA has combined two topics, prisoners and zoning and it's creating a burden on municipalities in the lower Hudson Valley. Patty Salkin, the Dean of the Government Law Center at Albany Law School and a land use expert joins us to explain. Plus we will speak with a documentary filmmaker Anne MacGregor who has produced a film "America's Holy War" about the issue.

And the town of Vestal is definitely *not* all pro-gas drilling. Sue Rapp will explain.
