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.
Embattled Prince George’s County Public Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell announced this week that he is stepping down after months of controversies. We speak to two Board of Education members about his tenure and the school system moving forward. Then we take a look at a less-than-positive report on the economic outlook for Montgomery County and talk about a proposal to use county funds for legal costs of immigrants facing deportation.
