'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Barbara Bartoletti of the League of Women Voters shares her analysis of the Congressional lines as they currently stand.

Monica Arias Miranda, President and CEO of the Hispanic Coalition NY, announced this week she is running for State Senate in the 46th District to unseat incumbent Neil Breslin.

How information is made available online "fundamentally controls what can be done with it", according to the Sunlight Foundation.

What's that mean? Why is it important? And how would it differ from NY's current open government initiatives?
