'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Tuesday, December 13, 2011 - 10:33 AM

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

  • We’ll take a look at the new crop of commissioners tapped to run JCOPE.
  • This year CSEA President Danny Donohue has walked a fine line between supporting the Governor’s programs, including last week’s package of tax reforms, and criticizing him on issues like pension reform. Today we speak with this long-time labor leader about his expectations for the coming session.
  • Apparently there are loads of ways that New York State can help you pay for college. Unfortunately, they’re hidden behind walls of bureaucracy. Today the Chairperson of the Assembly Higher Education Committee Deborah Glick and former Assistant Vice President of Financial Aid Services at HESC, Brian Matthews, will help to unearth these funding gems.
