'The Capitol Pressroom' with Susan Arbetter

Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

Capital Tonight’s Liz Benjamin & the NY Daily News’ Glenn Blain on what we should be looking for in Tuesday’s budget address. Also, if I can convince them, we will share our most embarrassing moments while covering state government in Albany.

While New York City now has mandated sex ed in public schools, the Shenendehowa School District in Saratoga County recently discontinued its sex ed program taught by Planned Parenthood. As Seinfeld would say, ‘What’s the deal with Sex Ed?” We’ll speak with Tracey Brooks, President & CEO of Family Planning Advocates of NYS & the Reverend Larry Phillips, pastor of Emmanuel Friedens Church in Schenectady, and a member of the Concerned Clergy for Choice.

And former State Assemblyman Michael Benjamin has been an outspoken critic of mandated sex ed in NYC schools. He joins us with another perspective on this upstate district’s recent decision.
