On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
A group of business leaders in the Washington region is pushing a proposal for the federal government to assert more control over the area’s mass transit system, Metro. The idea brings back memories of the federal “control board” Congress once imposed on the District to fix the city’s finances. Kojo explores what the Federal City Council’s push to redraw Metro’s compact would mean for riders, workers and the leaders of the system.
