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.
D.C., Maryland and Virginia don’t often speak with one voice–certainly not about Metro, Amazon, or where the FBI should put its headquarters. We don’t even have a great way to refer to the greater D.C. area. Can it get much worse than “the DMV”? Is a lack of collaboration or regional identity holding us back, or does healthy competition raise the bar higher for everyone? We discuss the challenges of regional cooperation and what it takes to get different jurisdictions on the same page.
