This week is a sampling of Planet Albany voices, as we check in on the budget process, consider the appointment of a new DEC commissioner, and examine why there was no major investment in the child care workforce.

We’ll hear from New York State Budget Director Blake Washington, Assembly Children & Families Committee Chair Andrew Hevesi, Senate Environmental Conservation Committee Chair Pete Harckham, and ReInvent Albany’s Rachael Fauss. And if you’re yearning for more policy-focused discussions, you can check out our Capitol Pressroom conversations with all these guests.

We’re also hosting a free, live recording of the podcast on the morning of May 20 at the Bull Moose Club with Tusk Strategies Partner Shontell Smith and NY Working Families Party co-Director Jasmine Gripper. Reserve your spot today!
