A Virginia State Senator joins us to talk about the ongoing struggle to pass a budget in the Commonwealth. A former Obama appointee tells us why he's running for Prince George's County executive. From Metro to Medicaid, we talk about the week's biggest regional news on the Politics Hour.

Locals have been playing regular pickup soccer games at Harriet Tubman Elementary in Columbia Heights for years, but the semi-organized groups had never formalized their use of the field with a permit. As the neighborhood has changed, other groups have laid claim to the space, including a bocce club, and more recently, a private soccer league. We explore the challenge of fairly allocating recreation space in a changing city.
