Today on "The Capitol Pressroom":

The Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee John DeFrancisco talked taxes with Eliot Spitzer (!) on Wednesday in Syracuse during the Maxwell School’s Campbell Lecture. We’ll ask him how the former Governor is doing, as well as how the current Governor is doing, and whether he supports the budget, home rule, redistricting efforts and all manner of other stuff.

State tax revenues are on the rise again according to a new report out from Rockefeller Institute. Robert Ward, the Deputy Director of the Rockefeller Institute and long time government finance expert joins us with details.


Courtney Burke, the head of the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities gives us an update on the administration's reforms efforts, plus her take on an upcoming Court of Appeals hearing on access to records.
