Hearings | Carnism
Monday, July 24, 2017

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hear testimonies from Donald Trump Jr. and Paul Manafort this Wednesday, July 26. Today, we'll discuss the potential impact of the hearings with political analysts. Later, a panel in the House recently voted to lift restrictions on horse slaughter for meat. Why do we eat meat, like chicken, without issue but shudder at the thought of eating other animals like horses? Call us with your thoughts at 440-2665 or 1-800-940-2240.


Transparency and the Peninsula Airport Commission
Tuesday, July 25, 2017

In May, Peninsula Airport Commission Executive Director, Ken Spirito, was fired after a Virginia Department of Transportation audit discovered he used airport money for personal expenses. The commission's search for a replacement comes just days after calls from Richmond for better training for board members and a greater focus on transparency. Today we'll talk with Virginia Secretary of Transportation, Aubrey Layne, about the need for accountability and visibility with entities like the Peninsula Airport Commission.
